Typo in National Geographic's Gospel of Judas ET

As I mentioned earlier, I'm checking up on materials for students in my Non-canonical Gospels class and spotted the following typo in the National Geographic English translation of the Gospel of Judas:
The cattle you have seen brought for sacrifice are the many people you lead astray [40] before that altar. […] will stand and make use of my name in this way, and generations of the pious will remain loyal to him. After hi another man will stand there from [the fornicators], and another [will] stand there from the slayers of children, and another from those who sleep with men.
It should, of course, be "him".
