BY RAYMOND THORNHILL Durham An obvious step on the road to establishing Hexaplaric readings is, of course, to call in the aid of the Syro-Hexaplar version 2) which best of all has preserved for us the Aristarchian signs used by Origen; the asterisk to mark his additions to the Greek, where the Hebrew had a fuller text, and the obelus to mark the passages which, while being present in the xow( Septuagint, were lacking in the Hebrew text.
