Artist's description:

The Septuagint was an alexandrian greek translation of the Old Testament, translated by an exiled group of what's said to be 70-72 Israelites scholars.

I didn't know much at all about this before the word came to mind which must have been a subconscious remembrance of the word seen somewhere, potentially. It was helpful to learn the story and how preachers in the New Testament, such as Paul, would have quoted these translations when speaking even with controversy around the authenticity and the authority they carried.

Helpful even more so for our own context, with much debate around the reliability of the Bible and its accuracy being under question. I find it fascinating that authenticity and authority or perhaps validity will always be at question. Some things are lost in translation but there are some things that speak loud enough to echo down the generations.
