  1. I must say I always wondered who wrote the Septuagint, a work which I see you imply to be more an original composition than a translation, hence "author" rather than "translator". But I hadn't expected this brilliant author to be a woman or to still be alive. The "(London, 2004)" publication data is presumably of a reprint. ;-)
