Grammatical commentary on Ecclesiastes?

Is there a good commentary on the grammar of the Septuagint version of Ecclesiastes?

Bonus points for something freely available online ...

Try La Bible d'Alexandrie : L'Ecclésiaste [N°18] I have not seen this book though, a review was made by Nicholas de Lange JTS 55(1):191-194 (2004),

For the Grammar of the Septuagint generally, I suggest Thackeray, available at and Google Books and
I translated Ecclesiastes for the Lexham English Septuagint, so I may be able to answer specific questions as well.
