      Dang! Wrong Cain.

      You are right, the second Cain is not found in Josephus (or SP). Outside the Lxx, it is found in Jubilees. That would still, of course, make it pre Christian if the Ethiopic translation using this name was not influenced by the NT or Lxx. I do not have the resources to determine whether the DSS fragments of Jubilees includes this passage.

      Could you provide references? I can't find it in Josephus. In Ant. book 1 he explicitly writes: "Shem, the third son of Noah, had **five** sons" and also: "Sala was the son of Arphaxad"
