More Inkwells

I'll let Ian finish this argument by supplying the data I don't have.

Nearly every tax/tribute paying scene in Egyptian tombs shows a scribe
with one pen behind his ear making accounts with another on his stretched
linen lapboard.  Yet scribe kits finds outside of burials are rare, so I
understand... (Ian?)

There were at least three scribe kits in Tut Ankh Amen's tomb.  Does this mean
that tombs were scriptoriums?  (There were no scrolls found in Tut's tomb
either, BTW.)

Maybe Greg and Golb's questioning is likely to be worthwhile?
