Superscripts and subscripts
This page shows a variety of superscript and subscript symbols, both alphabetic and non-alphabetic. To see further details about a particular entry, such as a fuller description, other images, related entries and manuscript sources, click on the title or image.

Note that scribes may also add missing characters below or above a line of writing, although these are mostly easily distinguishable from characters that occur at superscript or subscript height.
