I don't know the answer to your question, but I can tell you that there is no Septuagint text of John's Gospel. The fourth evangelist did, of course, make use of the Septuagint in his Old Testament quotes and allusions (but did not follow it in every case).

Subject: [Milton-L] Milton and Greek texts of John's gospel

For a project on Milton's use in Paradise Lost of the Bread of Life discourse from John's gospel (6:22-59), I would appreciate knowing which Greek texts of John (apart from the Septuagint) Milton used or would likely have had access to.  Sources for and/or discussions of this issue are welcome.
Many thanks,
