Just Found A Smiley Face On A Twelfth Century Manuscript

I just found a smiley face on a twelfth century Greek manuscript written above the line. My mind was sort of blown away (just kidding). Yeah I've been looking at Greek manuscripts of Matthew for a really, really, really long time (somewhere like 15 left to go). Anyways, it wasn't really a smiley face, just an upsilon with dieresis. But hey, at least I caught myself and didn't mention finding a scribe who invented a primitive version of emojis. That definitely wouldn't be good scholarship, I'm sure you agree.
