Journal Article
"The citations of Hecataeus in C 1:183-205 and Ps. Aristeas 31 must be considered authentic, but the citation in C 2:43 is probably not authentic. Includes discussion of Josephus' manner of quotation as well as excursus on the state of research and on the title "high priest" given to Ezechias (C1:187)". "When allowance is made for the ways in which Josephus customarily used sources, there is nothing in the material attributed to Hecataeus of Abdera in Against Apion 1:183-204 that the early Hellenistic ethnographer could not have reported. Deciding in favor of the authenticity of the Hecataeus passages in Letter of Aristeas 31 and Against Apion 2:43 is much more difficult. however. The three appendixes to the article deal with Hecataeus and ps.-Hecataeus in research, the debate about authenticity, and archiereus as a title for Ezekias". - D.J.H.
