In a Hebrew translation of some Philonian works, Israeli scholar Yehoshua Amir (formerly Hermann Neumark, 1911–2002) offered a number of emendations, explaining some of them in extensive footnotes. To make some of his suggestions more widely available, I translate here three of his more important notes explaining his emendations, and discuss them with further evidence. They deal with emendations to Migr. 9, Heres 52 f., and Heres 313 f.
