The Accordance Byz text (GNT-Byzantine)  appears to contain Nestle style sigla, as if for textual variants (within the Byz family?)  But when one hovers the mouse cursor over a siglum, nothing appears in Instant Details when I hovered over sigla in Rev 22:6. ( Καὶ εἶπέν μοι, ˹ Γέγονα. τὸ ˺ Ἄλφα καὶ τὸ Ὦ ) Is that a bug?


By way of contrast, this is what one gets with NA27

The apparatus is found in the parallel GNT-BYZ Notes file. It seems we did not activate the sigla in this module.


Here is an explanation found in the Read Me-Modules for GNT-BYZ.

The Robinson-Pierpont Text as represented here includes a combined text apparatus.
The print version distinguishes the variations within the Byzantine tradition in the outer margin of each page; the sigla <> mark those words which have a variant within the Byzantine tradition.
The lower apparatus, at the foot of each page, shows variants from the Byzantine tradition found in the Nestle-Aland and UBS4 modern critical editions.

In the electronic version, here presented, there is one apparatus.  The two distinct apparati in the Robinson-Pierpont text are distinguished instead by the letter “B” (for Byzantine) and “N” (for Nestle-Aland, et. al.) immediately after the verse reference.
