orion re: codes in the scrolls

Let me also add an addendum; simply because a word or phrase has no apparent
reference to moderns does not mean that it had no well known reference to
the ancients.  Thus, though Kittim might be inexplicable to us does not mean
that it was to them.  Therefore, when we speak of "code words" we are
speaking anachronistically- and saying more about ourselves than them.
