Palimpsest

Is there a synonym for palimpsest (aside from codex rescriptus) or perhaps another way to say that something is a palimpsest. I'm trying to describe the traces of previous writing on a chalkboard that was erased, but is still somewhat visible. I considered saying "ghosts" or something, but I'm not sure that it's a better choice.
