Re: CD


The abbreviation CD stands for "Cairo Damascus," according to VanderKam.  
It goes back to the discovery of the manuscripts in the Genizah in Cairo 
in 1896 and therefore antedates Qumran naming conventions.  It's been in 
common use in scholarly discourse and should be included in various lists 
of abbreviation relevant to Biblical studies.
