Aquila of Pontus' Greek OT

G'day all.

I was leafing through the preface to the New Jerusalem Bible and came
across this abbreviation:

        Aq. Aquila of Pontus, and the Greek text of the Old
                Testament according to his recension, early second
                century AD.

I assume this is the same AKULA from Acts 18:2 etc.

I hadn't heard of this text before. Does anyone know the story behind
it, references I could look up or maybe even if the text is available?
