Okay, since nobody else said anything about it, I went digging and found a very brief description here[theox.org] in item # 19:
Another famous manuscript which came to light is named the Codex Ephraemi (Latin spelling; Codex Ephraim, English spelling). It was also written in the 5th century but it has a very interesting history. In the 12th century, someone scraped off the writing of the biblical text and over it wrote sermons and treatises from a 4th century Syriac author by the name of Ephraim! It is therefore called the Codex Ephraim Rewritten (Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus). Fortunately, after finding this manuscript, Tischendorf spent a long time with it and through extraordinary work, he managed to scrape off the new writing and used various reagents to recover the text of the original Bible in fairly readable condition.
What do you mean nobody else said anything about it?
Palimpsest: a parchment or the like from which writing has been partially or completely erased to make room for another text.
I summarized the description pretty accurately here:
Fine, we will go with palimpsest.
It's sort of like an Etch-a Sketch only different.
