Although Joseph Scaliger knew only a defective version of this king list, by the early 17th century a number of correct versions were available to scholars. The three earliest correct manuscripts, written in Byzantine uncial script, date from the eighth to tenth century A.D.; they are kept in Leiden (Leidensis BPG 78), the Vatican (Vaticanus graecus 1291) and Florence (Laurentianus 28–26).
