    I don't know of any printed edition of those versions, and anything we have would likely have to be reconstructed and/or back-translated intro Greek. If only scribes had rightly copied Origen's Hexapla and people had preserved more than fragments of it.
    So, for a list of Greek OT editions in which the variants are included to varying degrees, check the ones on this page: Greek Editions of the LXX
    The Gottingensis is the 'official' and most thorough one, and Logos is digitizing it.
    Do consult the Cambridge. Cambridge is online at Internet Archive HERE.

    That page doesn't mention Swete's edition which has a larger apparatus than the Rahlfs which is in BibleWorks. You can check the volumes HERE at Internet Archive.

    If you want to spend the time figuring out his system, Field's edition of Origen's Hexapla is at Internet Archive.
