Summary: The article continues the author’s paper [Algebra Logika 35, No. 6, 663-684 (1996; Zbl 0880.20006)]. A minimal permutation representation of a group is a faithful permutation representation of least degree. We find degrees and point stabilizers, as well as ranks, subdegrees, and two-point stabilizers, for groups of types \(E_6\), \(E_7\), and \(E_8\). This closes the study of minimal permutation representations of finite simple Chevalley groups.
