Aristobulus II's "sadducees"?

Dear Greg D.,
	Commenting on the date of Pliny's source, you wrote on 3 Oct:
"This would put his Essenes as neighbors of Aristobulus II's "sadducees"
who according to Josephus were expelled from Jerusalem and given the
Judean desert fortresses mid or late first BCE."
	Do you really mean "neighbors"? And, Where does Josephus tell us
of these "sadducees" of Aristobolus II, their expulsion and residence?
