HH: Thanks for posting this list of Hebrew names, LXX
transliterations, and their respective pronunciations in our
alphabet. What it suggests to me is that the Greek names did not use
a consistent transliteration system (i.e., use of K and C), and some
of the transliterations are contrary to the evidence of the Hebrew
letters (i.e., DAMASKOS, CALANNI, IOQOR).
