Abstract This study will examine the fragments attributed to Symmachus that are extant in the book of 1 Kings. These have been collected for a new critical edition and represent the latest collection of the fragments of Sym's translation for 1 Kings. For the purposes of obtaining accurancy in this study, only those readings which are uniquely attributed to Sym will be examined, leaving aside even mixed attributions that may also include Sym. These readings will be analysed in three parts. First, lexical and grammatical features utilised in Sym's translation; second, the readings that might be considered exegetical translations; and finally, the influence of Symmachus' translation in later textual history. Constant reference to previous works on Symmachus - most notably those of Busto Saiz, González Luis and Salvesen - will help identify the elements in 1 Kings that are consistent with what is now known about Symmachus in the Psalms, the Major Prophets, and the Pentateuch, respectively.
