Summary/Abstract: The presented study researches into the characteristics of the heavenly figure one like a son of man (ὡς υἱὸς ἀνθρώπου) within the Greek translations of Daniel (7, 13–14). In the first part, the attributes of the Theodotion’s translation are shown, while the nature of the Septuagint rendition are highlighted in the second part. By using the basic tools of literary analysis, the examination of two Greek translations points to the progresses made in the messianic characterization of the heavenly Son of man figure. The located characteristics of the Greek translations are meant to serve as ground for further research into the reception of Dan 7, 13–14 in the New Testament and other literature.
