[b-hebrew] Did anyone write "Iaoue" before 1863 A.D. ?

Gerard Gertoux has provided me with page  80 of what he refers to as 
 "the last critical edition of the text of Clement of Alexandria"

>>>
(A. le Boulluee - /Les Strommates V,VI:34,5
 in: Sources chretiennes n 278, Paris 1981 Ed Cerf pp. 80,81)" 
>>>

This critical Greek edition [written in 1981] quotes Clement of
Alexandria as writing Iaoue in his Greek Stromata Book V.

This critical Greek edition notes that Greek Codex Laurentianus V 3
[written in the 11th century] says that Clement wrote "Iaou" not "Iaoue"
in his Greek Stromata Book V. 

This critical Greek edition notes that O. Stahlin has written a a Greek
edition of the Clement's Stromata [written in about 1905 and revised in
1960]  that also says that Clement wrote "Iaoue".

This critical Greek edition notes that there is a catena [Coisl. 113 fol.
368v] that quotes Clement as writing "Iaoue". 

The following catenas are said to preserve "Iaoue" :

Monac. gr. 9
Monac. gr. 82
Paris. gr. 1825
Paris. gr. 1888
Coislianus 133 [noted above]
Taurin. III, 50

It is difficult to find any information about any of these 6 catenas.

The question arises how solid is the evidence presented in:

(A. le Boulluee - /Les Strommates V,VI:34,5
 in: Sources chretiennes n 278, Paris 1981 Ed Cerf pp. 80,81)" 

It is written by a Greek scholar, who quotes an undated catena  that says
that  Clement wrote "Iaoue",
but also quotes  Greek Codex Laurentianus V 3 [dated as written in the
11th century] which says that Clement wrote "Iaou" not "Iaoue".
