    There are those that claim that the Ark kept in Axxum, is thegenuine
Ark.  This artifact is paraded once a year...but covered.
No one has seen it, or allowed to see it, but a few monks.  Is it
THE ark?  A copy?  Who knows?

    The only reference that comes to mind, and there may well be
others,is in 4Q504 (Words of the Luminaries) but the text does not refer
the Ark as a contemorary, existing artifact but reflects on it's
in Jerusalem at the time of David.
