Funding Information:
We would like to express our warmest thanks to the staff of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, in particular Christoph Rauch, for the permission to carry out the work and to Melitta Multani for her assistance in preparation of the scroll for the analysis. We would also like to thank Myriam Krutzsch for the transport box. This research was partly funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in conjunction with the Federal Excellence Strategy and the Cluster of Excellence EXC 2176, ‘Understanding Written Artefacts: Material, Interaction and Transmission in Manuscript Cultures’, project no. 390893796. It was partly carried out at the Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures (CSMC) at Universität Hamburg. See for example Hahn et al. 2008 on the reconstruction of the history of a manuscript from the same collection as the one studied in this article.
