orion phylacteries at Qumran

Regarding the recent query concerning the phylacteries at Qumran, I
suggest reading the following doctoral dissertation:

David Rothstein, 'From Bible to Muraba'at:  Studies in the literary,
textual and scribal features of phylacteries and mezuzot in ancient
Israel', UCLA 1992

Rothstein deals at length with the evidence from the Dead Sea area.
