Another Argument Against the Official Name of the Marcionite Collection of the Pauline Letters Being "the Apostolikon"

Origen calls the Greek translation of the Pentateuch used by the Samaritans the "Samaritikon." Does anyone with any knowledge of the Samaritans think the Samaritans referenced the text by this name? No of course not. It was called "the Samaritan one" by outsiders like Origen just as it is Adamantius in the Dialogue who calls the Marcionite collection "the Apostolikon." In other words it was a name again given by outsiders to the collection.
