Dear Mr. Baker,

The following is a list of scrolls from the Judaean desert classified as
biblical and containing portions of Leviticus.  Publication information for
the critical edition of each entry is listed in the right column;
publication information for preliminary editions of several of these
manuscripts (e.g., 4QExod-Lev-f, 4QLev-c, 4QLev-d, 4QLXXLev-a,
pap4QLXXLev-b) is not included here.

To the best of my knowledge, this list represents all Leviticus mss found
in the Judaean desert; as you can see, all have been published in some

2QNum-d? is listed here because its contents are designated in DJD III as
Num 18:8-9, but also possibly as Lev 23:1-3. 

The contents of these mss are listed in Eugene Ulrich's recent article, "An
Index of the Passages in the Biblical Manuscripts From the Judean Desert
(Genesis-Kings)," Dead Sea Discoveries 1/1 (1994) 113-129.

Hope this helps!
