Title: Loyal to the Text and to the King?
Subtitle: A Commentary on Dan 11,6-9 OG
Author(s): SETTEMBRINI, Marco
Journal: Biblica
Volume: 99    Issue: 1   Date: 2018   
Pages: 60-74
DOI: 10.2143/BIB.99.1.3284712

Abstract :
This article offers a textual-historical commentary on the Old Greek version of Dan 11,6-9. The Alexandrian scribe transmits an anti-Seleucid passage while projecting events from his time (164-116 B.C.E.) onto events connected to the Laodician war (246-241 B.C.E.). The text he produces tries to stick to its Hebrew Vorlage and yet enhances the achievements of the Ptolemaic kings in line with their royal propaganda.
