This is really not a critical observation by any stretch, but I ran across a
statement like this before in a commentary. Upon further investigation I
found that there were multiple LXX's in existence during the first century.
Many of these LXX's varied noticeably. In fact, several of these LXX's are
quoted in the NT that do not exist today. (This is often appealed to in
resolving the seemingly endless "misquotes" by Stephen in Acts 7.)

I suspect that LXX's were like MSS today. They are many and varied.
