Re: orion Leather, parchment, pens, etcetera

Probably the closest we will come to a proper term for the material used
for most scrolls at Qumran is either skin (or hide) or "primitive
parchment". If these terms seem irksum and one would insist on erring in
order to use more familiar terms (in a rather loose fashion), then
"parchment" is a certainly far better candidate than "leather".
