      Review of David L. Washburn's review of my book "Repetitions of the
      Possessive Pronouns in the Septuagint". Septuagint and Cognate
      Studies Series 40. Scholars Press 1955.

      I was very happy to see a review of my book so soon and, of course, I
      was very delighted with David L. Washburn's high evaluation of it.
      Unfortunately, he has misunderstood one of my main results. David L.
      Washburn writes in his review: "Sollamo shows ... that repetition of
      possessive pronouns in lists of two or more nouns is not a Hebraism
      at all; it is perfectly good Koine Greek. Authors such as Polybius,
      the Ptolemaic Papyri, Pseudo-Aristeas, Philo and Josephus repeated
      the pronouns more often than not." This is not correct. I have
      demonstrated that there is only one case involving the repetition of
      possessive pronouns by the Koine authors, namely Bell. Iud. 1,558. My
      examples are not taken at random from Koine authors. I have presented
      my text corpus on p. 7, and it has been scrutinized thoroughly. My
      examples are all that appear in this text corpus. As a result I state
      on page 17: "Firstly, the normal LXX practice of repeating the
      possessive pronoun with coordinate items proves to be a Hebraism." I
      understand that it is not very common to criticize a review. I would
      consider it very unfortunate, however, if wrong information
      concerning my book was spread among the scholars.

      Yours sincerely,
