   Hardly fair to discuss this when the originals are either "un-
   subscribed" or "proscribed" and can't answer.

   My way to answer is to remind you of John Allegro's 1955/6 note
   on the use of Castor Oil to brighten the scripts and of my own
   notice that we have no record of which Scrolls wer affected and
   which not, leaving all "contaminated", hence any date assigned
   will be seen as later than their origins.
