A note on a still unresolved conundrum, the identification of scribes in this famous manuscript of Euripides: whether a third hand, and not the principal one writing later in a slightly different manner, took over from the second (clearly distinct from both) in mid-codex – and finished abruptly after crowding text at the very foot of a leaf and even more at the top of a new one, only to stop in mid-line (192 of Electra). Possible explanations are considered, and an earlier suggestion of a third scribe renewed.
