sG.21.338: Kane and Donaldson read the initial letter here as sir, but it is definitely deleted. The scribe may have decided to write "sir" (as does BB) but if so he changed his mind. It is also possible that this is just a spelling change and that the scribe began to write
the word "certes" with initial <s> and then decided to spell with a <c> as is his usual practice. certes he sayde felowe / syr penetrans domos
