Septuagint Chronology

Does the Eastern Orthodox have a chronology of the Septuagint like the protestants have (Usshers for example)?

I have found one by a Lutheran pastor online but unfortunately many of the data choices he made were from the Masoretic Text instead of the Septuagint.

Thanks, Cynthia

Not that I know of. I'll have to research that.
 
I appreciate your responses.

I have been working on a chronology based on the Septuagint for about 12 years. When I am finished I will post the results here.
 
I have finished the chronology. I came up with 5310BC as creation of Adam. Fascinating project, the biggest and best thing I have ever done. I mailed the manuscript to Library of Congress last week for copyrighting. I am beginning the process of looking for a publisher. Probably will go with Amazon. I'm afraid it is so huge (320 pages of 9x11) that I may need to write a condensed version for portability and cost.

Other Septuagint Chronologists: Josephus/5344BC, David Rohl/5375BC, John Jackson/5426BC, S.B. Goodenow/5454BC, William Cuninghame/5478BC, Theophilus/5498BC, Julius Africanus Sextus/5500BC, Demetrius/5500BC, Rev David Kind/5501BC, Stavros Markou/5508BC, Thomas Brett/5508BC, William Hales/5511BC, Eusebius/5518BC, Henry Smith Jr/5554BC, Steven Rudd/5554BC, Playfair/5555BC, Isaac Vossius/5598BC, Barry Setterfield/5690BC
 
The Byzantine calendar starts from the estimated date of creation from the Septuagint. Year 1 begins at September 1, 5509 BC.

That agrees with the chronology from Josephus, but it is more than 1000 years different than that based on the modern (Masoretic) Hebrew scriptures.

I believe I have this work from Steven Rudd in his book "The Essential Collection".
