orion-list Seth in Josephus

Dear Listers,

In Wise, Abegg, and Cook's Dead Sea Scrolls (p. 381) there is reference to 
"a legend that Seth, the son of Adam, wrote out many revelations on stone 
tablets, which could be read only by the righteous Josephus Ant. 1.70)^" 
but I don't find this material in Josephus.  Can anyone help with a) the 
reference from Josephus and b) more on the legend itself.

Any help is appreciated.
