Rambam LISTED them, he did not INVENT them. We KNEW them already -
from written and oral Torah.

OK. But it would of course be anachronistic to expect the LXX
translators to understand Rambam's 12th century CE concept of the
Mashiach. But this concept is just as irrelevant to this list as the
Christian concept of Christ. Despite some claims on both sides, no
doubt, the Hebrew Bible concept of the Mashiach is not controlled by
these later understandings, although it may be illustrated by them.
