The Greek translations of Daniel contain several pieces.. The most important are contained in the Apocrypha of the English Bible (Second Canonical Books accepted by the Orthodox and Catholic Churches, but not by the Protestants in the 16th century!) under the titles of The Son of the Three Holy Children, The History of Susannah, and The History of Bel and the Dragon. The first of these is supposed to be the triumphal song of the three confessors in the furnace, (Daniel 3:23) praising God for their deliverance, of which a chief part (35-66) has been used as a hymn in the Christian Church since the fourth century, and you can find more about that here on st-takla.org on other commentaries and dictionary entries. The second, called also The Judgment of Daniel, relates the story of the clearing of Susannah from a charge of adultery; and the third gives an exaggerated account of Daniel's deliverance.
We don't want duplicate entries here at St-Takla.org, so you can find the Book of Daniel at the Deuterocanon section here.
