In order to follow already existing habits, we are looking for some examples of encoding for palimpsest texts, that is:
- erasing intentionally and entirely or most of the surface of the TBO: some symbols are still observable and eventually readable on this/these older layer(s).
- reusing the same surface to write another text, sometimes totally different from the previous one: this most recent layer on the manuscript is usually more readable than the older one / the olders.
Palimpsest texts have a "semantic baggage" that is a bit different from similar writing processes such as the two following examples:
- erasing part of the written surface (e.g.: a word or a letter) and rewrite for correcting a mistake for instance; in such an example both writings belong to the same layer and the writing process belongs to a same intention / moment / production.
