Unfortunately, I cannot identify these abbreviations, but you may consult
the following for LXX-manuscripts (which probably is the most pragmatic
and inclusive catalogue): J. van Haelst, Catalogue des Papyrus littˇraires
Juifs et Chrˇtiens, Paris 1976, nos. 1-323.
= 4Q120, in: P.W. Skehan/E. Ulrich/J.E. Sanderson, Qumran Cave 4. IV:
Palaeo-Hebrew and Greek Biblical Manuscripts (DJD IX; Oxford 1992).
> LXX P. Oxy. VII.1007
The Oxyrhynchus Papyri VII. Publ. by the Egypt Exploration Society in
Graeco-Roman Memoirs. Ed. A. S. Hunt, Oxford 1910. I don«t know it there
is a picture included in this edition, but P.Lond.Lit. 199 (= Catalogue of
the Literary Papyri in the British Museum. Ed. H.J.M. Milne, London 1927,
should have at least a description (cf. van Healst, Catalogue, no. 5).
If you have problems with these contact

Translation of Aquila, Cambridge 1897.
