Is noither fisshe noL.13.99: L alone reads no; most other B witnesses have ne. flesshe · but fode for a penaunte
Is neyther fyshe ne flesh , but fode for a penaunt
Is neither fisse ne flessh · but foode for a penaunce
Is nother fisch ne flesch but fode for þe
penauntes .R.13.95: R's þe is unique; F omits a determiner here but agrees
with R on penauntes, which is an alpha variant; beta reads the singular,
a penaunte. Though C manuscript N agrees with beta
(presumably as a result of its usual pattern of micro-contamination), none of the other C copies does and Cx agrees with F.
Is neyþir fyshȝ ne fleshȝ / but foode for penauntys.F.10.93: Alpha is responsible for penauntys. Beta manuscripts have singular a penaunt.
