The following are passages I have collected for my book "A Catalog of
Biblical Passages in the Dead Sea Scrolls" (so far unpublished) from
Daniel 11 and 12:
Dan 10:21-11:2 4QDan(c)
Dan 11:13-16 4QDan(a)
Dan 11:13-17 4QDan(c)
Dan 11:25-29 4QDan(c)
Dan 11:32 4QFlor (questionable)
Dan 11:33-36,38 6QDan
Dan 12:10 4QFlor (also questionable, but pesher intro
attributes to Daniel the Prophet)
4QDan(a) is published by Ulrich in BASOR 268:17-27, 4QDan(c) also by
Ulrich in BASOR 274:3-26. 6QDan is in DJD 3:115 and 4QFlor is DJD
Note that my compilation is only current through DJD 9, so there may
be more Daniel material in the newer Cave 4 volumes that I haven't
gotten to yet.
Hope this helps,
