The main goal here is text that was totally missed on the first pass and then added in the margin
Maybe consider large deletions as well.

c actually refers to a large group of scribes (perhaps five) who worked in the seventh century and made the large majority of the corrections in the manuscript. Often they cannot be reliably distinguished. The most important (and probably the first) of these is known as
c.a, who did a great deal to conform the manuscript to the Byzantine text (and not infrequently undid the work of
a). The next phase of corrections, labelled
c.b, may perhaps have been the work of three scribes, who added a few more Byzantine readings. In addition, the symbols
c.Pamph is sometimes used to refer to a scribe who worked primarily if not exclusively on the Old Testament (his corrections, in fact, seem to be confined to 1 Kingdoms-Esther), commenting that he was working from a Pamphilian manuscript, while
c.c and
c.c* refer to two minor correctors from late in the seventh century;
many of their changes are in the Apocalypse. We may ignore
d; this symbol is not generally used.

Note check if CPamph may have been done separately on the section taken out.

Why is Corrector S1 ( CorrectorS1 for search ) supposedly not the original.

Check the theory out.

Look at the same word at the beginning of Revelation - identical letter forms, likely identical ink



Corrector s1 rev 1-1.jpg

S1’s corrections were part of the manuscripts production process, but it is not always possible to tell whomade the correction – the firsthand or another scriptorium corrector.

Actually, it looks 100% clear that the scribe of Revelation put in the superscription.


The Titles of the Gospels in the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts
Simon J. Gathercole
30 See K. Lake, Codex Sinaiticus Petropolitanus: The New Testament, the Epistle of Barnabas and the Shepherd of Hermas, Oxford 1911, xxiv (cf. xxii and Plate I).
33 Lake, Codex Sinaiticus Petropolitanus (see n. 30), xx (where the argument is also made for a single scribe as the source of the superscriptions); T.C. Skeat, The Codex Sinaiticus, the Codex Vaticanus and Constantine, JThS 50 (1999) 583–625, here 603. The subscriptio to Mark and the opening title to Luke are written by Scribe D (and therefore are still part of the original production) on a cancel leaf (Jongkind, Scribal Habits [see n. 27], 45–46).
