"The function of this Index to Aquila's version of the Bible is to assist in the major task of obtaining a pre-Massoretic Hebrew text to the Old Testament.

The way back is through the fifth column of the Hexapla. Origen was not the first editor to make the Greek Bible conform more closely with its Hebrew original and the process may have begun even before Aquila, Symmachus, and Theodotion. Nevertheless, the additions which Origen made in the fifth column from these three sources deeply affected subsequent transmission of the Septuagint text"--Introduction
