Thanks for all your help, Ken. Much appreciated.

Chasing up on your last post I contemplated that the form nazaraias had the appearance of a Grecified form of the Latin for Nazirite, nazaraeus, as seen both in the Vulgate and Tertullian. That puts the Coilinianus form in the too hard to handle basket. To complicate things more, Lev 25:11 on the next page of the codex provides a parallel, but features naziraia, though it appears to be the same annotater! It seems to me this has been an interesting cul-de-sac, but I can't see that I can use these as exemplars in a phonological analysis pertaining to several centuries earlier.
