“Evidence that some diple were penned after a small number does not constitute proof that all diple were written after all small numbers.”
“This is not surprising in light of the evidence listed above that diple were written concurrently with the text and prior to distigmai.”
“For example, Head asserts: "the small numbers are also secondary to the diple," but although Head is correct that most diple predate small numbers, there is significant evidence of cases where even a diple was penned after a small number (p. 11).”
“Head shifts grounds on crucial issues, such as appealing to "the colour and faded nature" of diple to "place these in the production stage of the codex," but rejecting that "even indeed actual similarities of observed colour … are a particularly good guide to the dating of dots.”
“The Payne-Canart thesis is primarily that those (51) distigmai (excluding mirror impressions ) that match the apricot color of the original text and of the original diple of Vaticanus should be regarded as part of the original production of Codex Vaticanus.”
“Why, then, should one presume that all distigmai, which display far more diversity than diple or small numbers, were written at the same time and, consequently, that all can be dated as late as the latest one?”
“To summarize, Head provides excellent evidence that in three instances a diple was partially obscured by a distigme, and in each of these three instances other factors support that the distigmai was a later addition (p. 8), not part of the original production of Vaticanus.”
“Head's paper attempts to repudiate the Payne-Canart thesis and the evidence we adduce for it from the matching apricot color of original text, most diple, and fifty-one distigmai.”
“One is at 9 mm with a diple separating it from the text on 1309 A 23.”
“sixteen places of interference between diple and distigme," but three have no diple, and eight are in a typical distigme position (pp. 7-8).”
