Abstract

The Ambr. MS A 147 inf., known as F in editions of the Septuagint, was written in the early 5th Century. It was considerably restored at the end of the 11th Century: all the writing was been retraced, some sheets were replaced, and a great number of corrections and notes were added. A palaeographical and codicological description of the MS is here given, focusing on its medieval restorations. A selection of notes and variant readings added in the margins are edited and commented. Many annotations quote from the Church Fathers and from the Hexapla, or add explanations from lexicographers; they are product of a Christian school. The variants show a knowledge of Aquila’s text and of other Greek translations, very close to the Hebrew text and belonging to the group of the ‘Jewish revisions’. Thus, F marginal notes attest to the usage by a Christian milieu of a Greek text of the Bible produced and used by Jewish communities. F arrived at the Ambrosiana Library from Macedonia in the 17th Century.
