It is recorded of the Cumæan Sibyl, that it was her custom to write her prophecies on leaves which she placed at the entrance of her cave, and that it required especial care, in such as consulted her, to take up these leaves before they were dispersed by the wind, as their meaning then became almost incomprehensible. We should suppose that some such windy contingency attended the manuscripts of the Septuagint at the Alexandrian Pharos.
