Jeroboam is indeed much more of a protagonist in the Greek duplicate than is his Masoretic counterpart, and all this is consonant with the duplicate's portrayal of him as the convener of the Shechem convention at which the decision to secede was taken.
Unfortunately the name Jeroboam is also used for a four-bottle quantity of champagne, and the name comes from a Biblical figure, so there is another value to this name.
