Often the oversight has a mechanical cause: similar words of phrases appear twice on the same page, and the scribe, after copying as far as the first, mistakes the second for the place he has reached, and so omits what comes in between. This is called s a u t d u m ê m e a u m ê m e.

(West 1973, 24)
