First, the LXX says that the eunuchs became angry because of Mordecai's promotion. According to Kossmann, the element of 'anger because of the promotion' is a plus, which does not make sense in the LXX without considering the background of Add. A. The element of anger in the LXX, however, is simply a translation of the MT. Mordecai's promotion is indeed a plus. However, is it true that we can understand it only when we know Add. A?

Mordecai is rewarded for the first incident; he is ordered to serve in the courtyard and is rewarded by the king. He is, however, not rewarded for the second incident; his name is written in a memo and that is it. Mordecai will be rewarded for the second incident in ch. 6. The anger of the two eunuchs, however, reminds me of the last verse of Add.
