The error of parablepsis (a looking by the side) is caused by homoeoteleuton (a similar ending of lines). Dittography is when a word or group of words is picked up a second time by the scribe and as a result the same line is copied twice when it only appears once.


Acts 19:34

The phrase "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians" appears twice in codex Vaticanus while it only appears once in other manuscripts.
