Abstract

This chapter explores issues concerned with both the classification and incorporation of papyrological and epigraphic material relating to the LXX, as well as the question of how this material has and should be used in critical discussions of relevant LXX texts. Papyrological discussion is focused on the Rylands Greek Papyrus 458, Papyrus Fouad 266, select Oxyrhynchus materials, and the Berlin Genesis. Epigraphic discussion of select material specifically highlights the value of the geographical demarcation they inherently provide. Avenues for further research are highlighted as 1) definition of an LXX quotation, 2) the continued need for work on the considerable unpublished material, and 3) methodological clarity on what constitutes material evidence as being classified as ‘Jewish’, ‘Christian’, or other.
