4Q394 Gentile Gifts/Sacrifices

Esteemed List,

Part II of the referenced text concerns itself with Temple regulations and 
makes several references to the issue of Gentile gifts/sacrifices in the 
Temple.  As Josephus records that this was indeed an issue that may have 
precipitated the Jewish revolt against the Romans [Wars 2.17], is it 
possible/probable that this document could refer to this period?  Was this a 
relevant issue during the Maccabean era?

Looking forward to any responses!
