The Greeks were very anal scribes. There was a theological debate between two groups based on “one iota”. One letter. The two groups have been seperated for 1700 years because of it. I don’t know about the first hundred years, but once they got it all settled down, the copying wasn’t willy-nilly. They believed this was the scientific way to do things and they treated it as seriously as any scientist today.
