      Re: Earliest LXX MSS

      Anchor Bible Dictionary (at 5:1094) offers the following table of early LXX
      MSS (slightly edited, and poorly formatted).

      Rahlfs' number; Contents; Date
      ---------------------------------------------
      801 Lev 26:2-16 Late 2nd BCE to early 1st CE
      802 Lev 2-5 1st BCE
      803 Num 3:30-4:14, w. lacunae 1st BCE
      805 Exod 28:4-7 Ca. 100 BCE
      819 Deut 11:4 2nd BCE
      847 parts of Deut 11 & 31-33 Early 1st CE
      848 parts of Deut 17-33 Late 1st BCE
      942 frag. fm. Gen 7 & 38 Late 1st BCE
      943 frag. fm. Minor Prophets Late 1st BCE to early 1st CE
      957 about 20 vv from Dt 23-28 Early 2nd BCE

      Are there any other early MSS? And how did each of these MSS translate the
      tetragrammaton, divine name, or "Yahweh"?

        Dear Wieland: How could one get their hands on a copy of these PO MSS or at least find out what is found on the MSS, with particular interest in the Job MSS?
