i have done some document work, both at home and in four locations world wide. those little hands are held by the photographer or their assistant. it is more common to find white gloved hands in the picture. the goal is to reproduce the document in pictoral form, flat.
this web page has many pictures of greek documents, and you will observe the ends of fingers in many of them.
enjoy your journey. pastor ty
