Do any of you know what this mark in the Aleppo Codex is meant to indicate? Cf. the screenshot attached. It is one of a few on the first page of the codex, which you view online here: http://aleppocodex.o...site/index.html This one is at Deut 28:31bβ (centre column, line 17—cf. lines 7, 14 and 28).

Any chance it is simply   לֹא ?

It looks like a לא to me also which are the first two letters of the next hebrew word

Hmm… That seems like a plausible explanation for this one, but it would not explain the others in the same column, which very similar if not the same.

See: http://www.aleppocod...rg/links/8.html

 

Under 2.4, first paragraph, about halfway in, it begins with "At the end of the lines, here and there one may note signs that seem like parts of letters."

Thank you! So they are filler signs.
