L Littera tam apud grecos quam apud arabes eodem modo se habet sicut apud nos.


Apparatus:

se habet ABC ejp | h. s. ms. f

Dahhaoui (2001: 212) established the same text on the basis of his collations:
L littera tam apud grecos quam apud arabes eodem modo se habet sicut apud nos.
and he notes these vvll. - not all shown - for: nos] grece scribitur sic λ add.


Translation:

The letter "L,l" functions in the same way with the Greeks as with the Arabs just as with us.


Commentary:

The Greek letter corresponding to "L,l" is "Λ,λ", named λά(μ)δα /lá(m)da/, it is the 11th letter of the Greek alphabet.

The Arabic letter corresponding to "L,l" is "ﻝ", named ﻻﻡ /lām/, it is the 23rd letter of the Arabic alphabet.

The different letters all represent the sound /l/, an alveolar lateral consonant in the three languages.
