On the date of composition of Additions B and E to LXX Esther

Domazakis, Nikolaos LU (2021) In Journal for the Study of Judaism 52(2). p.1-29
Abstract
Additions B and E to LXX Esther have been variously dated from the second century BCE to the first century CE. This study links the two Greek Additions, on the one hand, with Philo’s writings through the concept of the “evil-hating justice” and, on the other hand, with the historical persons and events related to the Jewish-Alexandrian conflict of 38-41 CE, and dates their composition or final redaction to the early forties of the first century CE.
