La means Latin version, i.e. the Vulgate of Jerome (Rahlfs does not seem to
cite the Old Latin text). This information is given on the separate card,
titled _Explanatio Signorum_, that comes with the book, but is not, so far
as I can see, explained in the "Explanation of Symbols" on pp. LXXVI-LXXVII
of the
English preface. Rahlfs also does not indicate which edition of the Vulgate
he is citing.
