824 leaves total. Kenyon’s estimation assessment varies from this number for two reasons. 15 Second, Kenyon (and all other researchers prior to this investigation) failed to notice 2 of the missing leaves that are only revealed when the quire structure and Arabic folio numeration are taken into consideration; these missing leaves are discussed below. 17 Woide described a portion of the NT (in medio 13 14 15 16 17 Scrivener mistakenly reported there being 639 leaves present in the OT (F. H. , 1875], 52), probably because he used Young’s faulty page numeration (discussed below).

Despite the fact that this account is supported by the likes of F. C. Burkitt and Silva Lake, it faces serious challenges from Kenyon and the inscription that must be from Athanasius II in the early 1300s. Muttis’ story could be true if the patriarchal library acquired Alexandrinus around the year 1300 and then somehow the text was lost or stolen, only to be reacquired from Mount Athos over 300 years later. Because it was a waḳf, it seems highly unlikely that a patriarch of an older era would have given the text away—though Cyril Lucar’s desperate position certainly led him to violate the inscription’s warning.
