For as a man may not see , that misseth hys eyen ,
For as a man may noȝt see . þat mysseþ hise eiȝen W.12.107:nota
For as a man may nought see · that mysses hise eighen
For as a man may nauȝt se þat misseth his siȝtes .R.12.109: Beta reads eyghen, which is also the reading of Cx; F has the singular syghte.R.12.109: The final <s> of siȝtes
appears to have been written over an erasure; it is, moreover, the tall <s>, which this
scribe almost never deploys in word terminal position (cf. the same word at R12.146). Its
form also seems abbreviated, with the descender entirely absent. Nevertheless, the ink
appears indistinguishable from that used by the scribal hand.
¶ For as man may not see / þat mysseþ his syghte.F.9.226: Alpha is responsible for syghte. Beta and C manuscripts have eiȝen.
