Thank you for info Patrick, this is important. Was thin and thick aspirations 
different 2000 years ago? I guess that no as (in modern typography variant) 
one needs good enough eyes to differenciate these, do I guess rightly?

OK, I for aspiration. Is it enough, Patrick, a "generalized aspiration" (with 
no difference between thin and thick)?

What was position of subscript iota in the most ancient texts (none, 
subscript, or normal?) Well, seemingly I already asked it somewhere some 
months ago, but my memory...
Well, accordingly to your info (devil worked much to make infos on such 
question from different sources different) was in the most ancient manuscripts 
proper names capitalized?

P.S. See my other letter for a great idea for Sword project unrelated to this
