      Dear Daniel,

      If I understand your query correctly, what appears to be a dittography is the standard reading of the text.

                http://www.musar.com/Vaticanus_Isa.6.2.jpg
                http://www.musar.com/Sinaiticus_Isa.6.2.jpg

      The Rahlf's edition that I have at hand, at least, mentions no variant readings at this place and the two early witnesses cited above treat the reading as the accepted text.

      Best wishes,

      T. A. E. Brown

      In Bagster's edition of Brenton's Septuagint, there is a dittography at
      Isaiah 6:2, as follows:

      KAI SERAFIM EISTHKEISAN KUKLW AUTO, EX PTERUGES TW ENI, KAI EX PTERUGES
      TW ENI - KAI TAIS MEN DUSI, KATEKALUPTON TO PROSWTON - TAIS DE DUSI
      KATEKALUPTON TOUS PODAS - DAI TAIS DUSIN EPETANTO.

      I'm not aware of any online images of Vaticanus or Sinaiticus at Isaiah
      6, so I couldn't check the source for this. Anyone with a CA of the LXX
      care to take a look at this, and note any other variants in this verse
      while you are at it?
