Although I don't know the answer about the Greek New Testament, I note that Milton's Euripides was published by the Estienne family, Paulus, then in Geneva.

Probably be Erasmus's text (the Textus Receptus of 1516).  Seems like another Greek text was prepared and published not long after the Textus Receptus, but I don't recall offhand.  Westcott and Hort's Introduction to the New Testament in the Original Greek is a very useful resource here.  I've found this list online:

<<Most notable among the many editors of Greek New Testaments in this period were Erasmus (5 editions: 1516, 1519, 1522, 1527, 1535), Robert Estienne a.k.a. Robertus Stephanus (4 editions: 1546, 1549, 1550, 1551), Theodore de Beza (9 editions between 1565 and 1604), and the Elzevirs (3 editions: 1624,1633, 1641).>> <http://www.bible-researcher.com/kutilek1.html#note3> 

But it seems like there's another edition that was particularly important to English translations.

	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.
