Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with one of the recently discovered revisions-the so-called proto-Lucianic revision. Since any analysis of this version is by its very nature closely related to Lucian's revision, it outlines the three major opinions proffered on the nature of his revision and the essence of the manuscripts boc2e2. The author showes that the main LXX manuscripts contain kaige-Th, while the OG is found in boc2e2. In conclusion, it is suggested that the substratum of boc2e2 contains either the OG translation or any single OG translation. The studies dealing with the character of the assumed proto Lucianic revision stress that this revision generally left the OG unrevised. It may be suggested that both the boc2e2 reading and the one found in the other manuscripts represent two parallel OG traditions. It is further suggested that the substratum of boc2e2 contains either the OG or any single OG translation.

Keywords: Lucian; LXX manuscripts; OG translation; proto-Lucianic version
