        Hi Carl
        No, Perseus does have Josephus and I find using their
        Josephus-only Greek word search is a fantastic supplement to
        CCAT LXX. But in view of your previous remarks on cut and
        pasting of other transliterations I took the trouble of
        word processing Perseus' th, ch and o^ e^ into b-greek
        standard using the Find/Replace function in Word6.0
        It took about 3 minutes. (but I have finally given up and
        ordered TLG-D, mainly as Perseus doesn't have Philo...)

        I'm sorry, my Hebrew is rudimentary, why would hUIOI QEOI
        be polytheistic in Hebrew? and is it so in other semitic
        Best regards
