Psalm 151 is actually in there, but without verse numbers (so I said it 
just contains one verse) or a chapter number. It follows the note about 
there being another genuine Psalm of David.

Daniel is always difficult. There are two versions of Daniel because one 
comes from Theodotion and the other is the Old Greek version. For those 
LXXes that have both, I just record the greater of the two verse counts.

That small book at the end that mentions Habakkuk in the title is a 
second copy of Bel & the Dragon. The true title for this book, when it 
appears as a separate book, is apparently "From the prophecy of 
Habakkuk, the son of Jesus, of the tribe of Levi".
