An Important Reference in Philo

From Schenck's A Brief Guide to Philo p. 10 "It is surely noteworthy that Philo calls the end of Deuteronomy the "end of the holy words" (Mas. 2.290). At least some synagogues in Alexandria may have given primacy to the Pentateuch over and against writings that other Jews also reverenced at this time."
