Re: orion Copper Scroll & the Persian Influence

Dear Herb Basser:

I specifically mentioned an Ancient Writer, not an Essene Writer.

I am speaking of the marvelous writings attributed to Hippolytus.  If I
have the story correctly, his writings on the Essenes were found only
about 100 years ago in a Greek Monastery, and so... presumably... have
survived some periods of passionate editing that other writings may have
been subjected to.  

The interesting thing about his "collection" is that he wrote or
collected the writings say around 200 or 300 AD, but the material on the
Essenes "sounds" like it was written while there were STILL Essene
factions roaming around.

I could try to deliver the relevant text (which is somewhat lengthy) if
you would like.
