F Milan, Bibl Ambr., S.P. 51 (earlier A. 147 inf.). V. Century. The corrections in F come from two distinct periods. The codex was first of all corrected by several hands whose common characteristic were a yellow or brown tint and majuscle script, known in the edition as FMDOLaMDNM. In medieval times the codex was throughout retraced by a restorer. This restorer also made cor~rections and is known in the ediiton as FMDOLbMDNM. The various FMDOLbMDNM hands are only distinguished as FMDOLb1MDNM FMDOLb2MDNM when the hands can be separated in time. When an error occurred in the retracing by FMDOLbMDNM this is called FMDOLsMDNM. Erasures which can hardly be assigned to any corrector are simply called FMDOLcMDNM. Most of the marginalia come from FMDOLbMDNM, and often erasure dots are used to designate the relevant text. These are not recognized in the edition. Edition: A.M.Ceriani, Monomenta sacra et profana 3, Milan 1864, The edition contains only the text of the original scribe without corrections (except for those of the original scribe).

II. The Old Versions


In the order of the Versions the Old Latin witneses stand at the beginning

in the Apparatus, in which the mss appear in numerical order, and then the citations of the

Fathers in alphabetic order. The other versions then follow in alphabetic order.

On the problems in general associated with the versions see Genesis 33-34.


1. The Old Latin Version (=La)


The margins of the following mss were collated:


91: Leaon, S. Isidoro, Codex Gothicus Legionensis. Written 960.

92: Leaon, S. Isidoro 1.3 (Legionensis 2). Written 1162. Copy of 91.

94: Escorial, Biblioteca de S.Lorenzo 54. V.35. Written 1561.

95: Madrid, Acad. de la Historia 2-3. XII. Century.

96: Calahorra, Catedral 2. Written 1183.


The marginal notes of 91 to 96 were collated on the basis of T. Ayuso

Marazuela, La Vetus Latina Hispana. II El Octateuco, TECC 6 Madrid 1967.

Some marginalia in this edition were noted as Al (i.e.. alius). These were

noted in Apparatus I under Al: plus ms number.


100 Lyon, Bibl. de la Ville, Ms. 403 + 1964. VII. Century. Edition: U. Robert, Pentateuchi versio latina antiquissima e codice Lugdunensi, Paris 1881.

Cittag del Vaticano 1946, 407-410.


For the text character of the Vetus Latina see A.V.Billen, The Old

Latin Texts of the Heptateuch, Cambridge 1927. As in Exod and Lev citations

of ms and the Fathers were not given according to texttypes. This is actually

easier, since the Vetus Latina in Numbers in contrast to Genesis and Deutero~nomy show a much more unified textual witness (both in mss and the Fathers). Beyond that, the independent renderings of the Greek hexaplaric text, i.e., LaMDOLOMDNM in Genesis as well as the renderings of PsPhil (LaMDOLXMDNM in Gen) are noted. The designation La is used when all Vetus Latina witnesses agree.

2. The Ethiopic Version (Aeth)


The collation of the Ethiopic version of Num was made according to Dillmann's edition and according to the text of cod. M. for both, as well as for cod.R which was not collated, comp Genesis 43-44. Cod.P. (cf Deutero~nomium 31) unfortunately was not available for me. Furthermore, the passage 5,11 LA3-6,14 LA1could not be collated for AethMDOLMMDNM, since that page was not in the copy which I had.


3. The Arabic Version = Arab


See Genesis 44-46.


4. The Armenian Version = Arm


The old Armenian version was collated from the Zohrab edition of the

year 1805. Arm is a good witness for the Byzantine text, (cf THGN), but secondarily also for the MDITOMDNM recension. As Claude Cox showed in his critical study on the Armenian text of Deuteronomy, Arm depends on a Greek parent text which represented the Byzantine texttype, but was also strongly influenced by the hexaplaric text. This parent text came from Constantinople, and was probably intentional brought to Armenia in order to serve as parent to the Armenian translation. See also Genesis 46-47.


5. The Coptic Versions = Co

a) The Bohairic Version = Bo


As for Deuteronomy (cf 31-32) two mss were collated for the Bo text:

Paris, Bibl. Nat., Coptic 1. 1356

Rome, Bibl. Vat., Coptic 1. IX.-X. Century

When the texts disagree the Paris ms is called BoMDOLAMDNM, and the Roman one, BoMDOLBMDNM. For the

Bo in general see Genesis 47.


b) The Fayyumic Version = Fa


Only a small papyri fragment of Fa is preserved: London, Brit. Mus.,

Or.4717(21) published as No.1221 in W.E.Crum, Catalogue of the Coptic Mss in

the British Museum, London 1905. Contents: 5,15-18. Fragmentary.


c) The Sahidic Version = Sa


The Sahidic text for Num is complete in SaMDUDMDOL12MDNM. Various pages of the Ms are barely legible; so no e silentio conclusions are valid. Beyond this ms there are 11 more mss, which, however, contain only smaller or larger fragments.

For the Sa in general see Genesis 48.


The following mss were collated:

It is quite unnecessary to reaffirm the great value of the Syro-hexapla

as a witness to the hexaplaric recension. As regards to the question of the

character of the Syh as translation see in particular Larry Perkins, The

Place of the Syro-Hexapla in the Textual Tradition of the Septuagint of

Deuteronomy (Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Toronto 1980); see also Genesis



III. Printed Editions


Especially significant are the three great oldest Bibles: Aldina (Ald) Complu~tensis (Compl) and Sixtina (Sixt). These have all been fully collated in this edition. The principles according to which these are cited are given below. Of the three the Sixt has been extensively reprinted. In this edition only the original texts were consulted.


1. Aldina (Ald)


Ald is particularly closely related in Numbers to 68LA3_LA1. Ald is cited in

the edition only when its text does not agree with that of 68LA3_LA1.


2. Complutensis (Compl)


The text of Compl is based to a large extent on 19LA3_LA1, though it seems that

the mss 56 and 129 were used as well. Compl is only noted in the Apparatus

when it does not agree with 19LA3_LA1.


3. Sixtina (Sixt)


Sixt is based on a large number of mss, but especially on Cod. B. It is

cited only when it does not agree with B.


4. Grabe (Gr)


See Genesis 53.


5. Holmes-Parsons (H.-P.)


See Genesis 54.


6. Lagarde


The text of Lagarde is his reconstructed text of the Lucianic Recension

of Genesis to Esther. The edition is not cited in this edition.


7. Brooke-McLean (Br.-M.)


See Genesis 54-55. The edition Numbers - Deuteronomy was published in 1911.


8. Rahlfs (Ra)


Rahlfs is a manual edition of the Greek Old Testament. In Numbers its text is essentially based on a comparison of Codd. A and B. A few hexaplaric plusses have also been noted.




PT12 The text history has been thoroughly discussed in J.W.Wevers THGMDITLA3MDNMLA1N. Only such information will be given here which is necessary for the use of this edition.


I. Recensions and Textgroups in the LXX-tradition


1. The MDITOMDNM recension


MDITOMDNM = G-58-376-426 Syh

MDIToIMDNM = 15-64-381-618

MDIToIIMDNM = 29-72-82-707


15LA3_LA1 = 15 + 64 72LA3_LA1 = 72 + 707 376LA3_LA1 = 376 + 426 381LA3_LA1 = 281 + 618

Hexaplaric signs are to be found only in G and Syh. A few are to be

found in mss which do not have an MDITOMDNM-text.


2. The MDITCMDNM-Group


MDITCMDNM = 16-77-131-500-529-616-730

MDITcIMDNM = 57-73-320-413-528-550-552-761

MDITcIIMDNM = 46-52-313-414-417-422-551-615


16LA3_LA1 = 16 + 131 46LA3_LA1 = 46 + 313 52LA3_LA1 = 52 + 615 57LA3_LA1 = 57 + 413

73LA3_LA1 = 73 + 320 414LA3_LA1 = 414 + 551 500LA3_LA1 = 500 + 739 528LA3_LA1 = 528 + 761

529LA3_LA1 = 529 + 616 550< = 550 + 552

The MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1-Group presents a widely distributed text type, which is repre~sented by Catena mss. Except for mss 16-46-131 all the witnesses of this group are catena texts. On the other hand, four catena mss could not be assigned to MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1. Ms 646 is a mixed text type which was indeed influenced by the text of MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1, but has so many differences that it wouldhave been inappropriately assigned to it. Ms 628 belongs to the MDITzMDNM-group, whereas 730 belongs to the MDITsMDNM-group. Ms. 424 does actually represent the MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1-type, but its text is so abbreviated that it could hardly be assigned to it, but was put into the codices mixti group.


3. The MDITbMDNM-group


MDITbMDNM = 19-108-118-314-537

19LA3_LA1 = 19 + 108 118LA3_LA1 = 118 + 314

19LA3_LA1 often divides from the other three, but the five do constitute

a closed group.


4. The MDITdMDNM-group


MDITdMDNM = 44-106-107-125-610

44LA3_LA1 = 44 + 106 107LA3_LA1 = 107 + 610 125LA3_LA1 = 107 + 125

For the MDITdMDNM-groupMDITMDNM is the chief representative of the Byzantine text cf



5. The MDITfMDNM-group


MDITfMDNM = 53-56-56-246-664

53LA3_LA1 = 53 + 664 56LA3_LA1 = 56 + 246

The ms 129 often deviates from the group.


6. The MDITnMDNM-group


MDITnMDNM = 54-75-127-458-767

54LA3_LA1 = 54 + 127 75LA3_LA1 = 75 + 458

Ms 54 has a few hexaplaric readings in its text.


7. The MDITsMDNM-group


MDITsMDNM = 28-30-130-321-343-344-36-730

30LA3_LA1 = 30 + 730 85LA3_LA1 = 85 + 130 321LA3_LA1 = 321 + 346 343LA3_LA1 = 343 + 344

The mss of the MDITsMDNM-group contains numerous hexaplaric readings on their margins.


8. The MDITtMDNM-group

MDITtMDNM = 74-76-84-134-370

74LA3_LA1 = 74 + 134 76LA3_LA1 = 76 + 370

As in the other books the MDITtMDBIMDNM-group is closely related to the MDITdMDNM-group.


9. The MDITxMDNM-group


MDITxMDNM = 71-509-527-619

71LA3_LA1 = 71 + 619 527LA3_LA1 = 527 + 71

For the character of this group see THGN.


10. The MDITyMDNM-group


MDITyMDNM = 121-318-392


11. The MDITzMDNM-group


MDITzMDNM = 18-68-120-122-126-128-407-628-630-669

18LA3_LA1 = 18 + 128 68LA3_LA1 = 68 + 122 120LA3_LA1 = 120 + 407 630LA3_LA1 = 630 + 669


II. The younger Greek Versions


For the character of the second Apparatus see Genesis 59-60. The catena

texts were systematically investigated for non-LXX readings, which were all excerpted. On this basis a text critical evaluation was made, and only the readings which had textual value were then included in the Apparatus. Readings which could be verified in all the MDITCMDNM-groups were noted as MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1; the notation of the sub groups of MDITCMDNM were used whenever a reading was established only in one or the other sub-group. In contrast to the first apparatus these notations do not mean that all the members of the group attest to the reading. Rather it means that a reading could be verified in at least two members of a subgroup. Furthermore, the source of the witness is also shown; i.e. a reading designated as MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1 means that it is a marginal notation, whereas MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1MDOLcommMDNM refers to a reading found in a commentary excerpt, and MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1MDOLcatMDNM, for all other readings within a catena text. Should the source of a MDOLcommMDNM reading be known, only the name of the Father is given. As for the catena texts not in the MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1-group, these are cited in the Apparatus only if additional material is given.

As to the tradition of the readings which are found in the second apparatus is concerned, the same surprising picture emerges as was already noted in the Genesis edition, viz. that the O-text was not well represented.

Syh is an exception, with 146 cases appearing in the Apparatus. The others are divided as follows: 49 cases in 58, 20 in 707, while 376 has only 4 cases. With the Fathers the situation is rather similar. One would expect particularly those who favour the hexaplaric text would have had ample cases. The summary shows meagre usage: Procop attests to 17 cases, Eus 9, Barh - 3, Tht 2 and Or only 1. No hexaplaric readings were found in any of the other Fathers.

For the majority of the mss which do contain any hexaplaric material, outside of those of the MDITOMDNM mss, very few were found. Of all the mss 128 has the most, 34, ms 108 ony 25, and 54 most of which are in the text, 24 cases. Beyond that none has over 15 cases.

The best source for non-LXX readings among the mss in Numbers are the pair, M-416, with 64 and 57 cases of marginalia resp. Mss of the MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1-groups show 57 readings, but the best source for hexaplaric materials are found in the MDITsMDNM-group: 489 cases in ms 344; 215 in 130, 131 in 346; 186 in 321, and 106 readings in ms 85.

Mention should also be made of FMDOLbMDNM with its 62 readings. These, however, do not in the majority of cases stem from the hexapla, but from an as yet unknown source.


LA3LA1 PT14 MDBOC Re this Edition


LA3 LA1The general layout of the Genesis edition was retained for Numbers as well. The changes over against earlier volumes of the Gouttingen Septuaginta are in part repeated from the Genesis volume.


1. The Introduction


The introduction is limited to those materials which are immediately necessary for the user of the volume. An extensive discussion, especially of the text history is t o be found in THGN. LA3LA1Deviations from Br.-M are collectively listed in an Appendix, which in spite of their importance are not absolutely necessary for the use of this edition.

LA3 LA1As in Genesis the Orthographica- and Grammatica-discussion has been placed in a Supplement.LA3 LA1It is limited, however, to the few instances of this which might help to understand some passages. In general, the matters discussed in Supplement I in Genesis are also valid for Numbers. For the construction of the edition the editor had to distinguish between real variants and variants which were only orthographic in nature; only the former were taken up in the first apparatus. Accordingly the itacistic variants of the trascriptions LA3 LA1and LA3 LA1are not noted in the Apparatus. Only for names are MDITallMDNM variants cited in the apparatus.


2. The Critical Text


As in the Genesis edition, proper nouns are supplied with accents, and where appropriate with spiritus lenis or spiritus asper. The principles which were followed in the Genesis edition are also followed in this edition. The reader is referred to Genesis 62-63.


3. List of Sources


Between the text and Apparatus I all the ms witnesses and versions are named in the same order as that in the apparatuses. For this see the following paragraphs. A witness whose text is fragmentary appears in parentheses, e.g. (963). Should the text of a witness begin on a particular page a hyphen follows, e.g. (963-). Should such a reference end there, the hyphen would precede, e.g. (-963).

It is also noted in the list when a piece of text fails for some external reason. E.g., should ms 318 lack some text due to leaf loss the notation would read LA3LA1MDITyMDOL-318MDNM. This would show that the entire LA3LA1MDITyMDNM-group except for ms 318 (which belongs to MDITyMDNMLA3LA1) contains the text of the page involved.

The abbreviation al (for alia manuscripta) refers to mss which could not be assigned to any text group, i.e. the so-called codices mixti as well as those mss too broken or damaged to be classified. The expression verss refers to all versions which contain the complete text of Numbers. Versions whose Numbers text is not complete, such as Pal, are placed at the end of the source list.



4. Apparatus I


The evidence for a variant is always given in a special order: a) the uncial mss in alphabetic order, b) the papyri in numerical order, c) the witnesses of LA3LA1MDITOMDNMLA3_LA1_> mss, d) the witnesses of MDITCMDNMLA3_MDNM_>LA1, e) the remaining text families (cf Section B I supra), in alphabetic order, f) the codices mixti, g) the rest of the Greek witnesses in the following order: N.T. witnesses, Phil, followed by the other Greek Patristics in alphabetic order, h) the Latin texts in numerical order, followed by the Latin Fathers in alphabetic order. The Latin witnesses are (except for unique readings of a Father) always introduced by a raised MDOLLatMDNMLA3LA1, i) the remaining versions in alphabetic order, and j) other witnesses or commentaries.

Over against the Genesis edition only the notation of the Latin witnesses has changed. The various text types, which had been used in Genesis such as LaMDOLKMDNMLA3LA1, LaMDOLILA3MDNMLA1, etc. could not be used, and the designation La in Numbers is only used to indicate that all Latin witnesses agree (cf Section A II 1. supra). This change was necessary since up to the present no critical edition of the Vetus Latina for Numbers has appeared, and so no secure basis for the classification of Latin witnesses according to text types is possible (cf Section A II 1 supra.). For the same reason it was necessary to record the witness of the Latin Fathers immediately after the Latin mss. For the changes in the notation which the Pentateuch editions have in common over against the other editions of the Gouttingen Septuaginta, see Genesis 64.


5. Apparatus II


The theory that underlies the second apparatus was explained above under B II. Unless otherwise stated the recorded variants are throughout marginal readings. Readings of the younger translators which are found in the commentary texts of catena mss are designated by a raised MDOLLA3LA1commMDNM, (for ex. 77MDOLLA3LA1commMDNM). Should such a reading be attributed to a certain Father, his name would be added, (for ex 77MDOLLA3LA1commThtMDNM). Readings within the catenas which are not in a commentary, are noted by a raised MDOLcatMDNMLA3LA1 (for ex. 77MDOLcatMDNMLA3LA1).



LA3LA1 PT14MDBOD Signs and Abbreviations


MDNMPT9- = up to, for ex. MDOLLatMDNMcodd 94-96 = MDOLLatMDNMcodd 94 95 96 or, it is

used to indicate mss within a group, for ex. 44-125-610 or MDOLLatMDNMcodd

94-96 = MDOLLatMDNM codd 94 95 96


MDITCMDOL-LA316LA1MDNM Mss deviating from a group are shown by a raised minus

sign, so MDITCMDOL-LA316LA1MDNM means all of MDITCMDNM except 16MDOLMDNM. Similarly AethMDOL-FLA3LA1MDNM

means all the Aeth texts except FMDOLMDNM.


MDITCMDNMMDOL(-16)MDNM indicates that ms 16 has a larger omission than the other

mg = a marginal reading in mss


(mg) means that a marginal reading does not contrast with a reading in

text, since the txt has a larger omission, e.g. 77(mg)


txtMDOL*MDNM,txtMDOLcMDNM,mgMDOL*MDNM,mgMDOLcMDNMMDOLMDNM are used if a txt- or margin- shows a correction


te refers to readings in the text of editions


MDOLapMDNM refers to readings (variants) in the apparatus of editions


MDOLcatMDNM(in App.2) means the reading comes from the Catena of a Catena ms
