Luke 11:54 - undocumented homoeoteleuton

Click to Enlarge
Again, no record in the UBS2 apparatus, but a significant omission nonetheless, originally adopted by Hort.

There is little to say about this obvious eye-skip from the early 3rd century, when all four gospels were being gathered into single manuscripts, and even combinations of Gospels/Acts/Paul etc. were made. 

The exact same omission could have arisen with five different text-alignments, in a 20-21 letter per line manuscript.
