Abstract :
The Bible relates the poignant episode of King josiah's death in two rather divergent versions, 2 Kgs 23,29-30a and 2 Chr 35,20-25. These versions have been analysed frequently, inter alia in terms of how they relate to each other. In the present study I wish to extend this comparative inquiry to include a third version of Josiah's demise, i.e. that given by Josephs in his Antiquities.
