   Whether it's that old, I'm not sure but I have the Allegro printing
   of it showing it to match clearly the LXX as against RV/MT, ie,
   here was Hebrew against MT and for LXX.  Allegro _The Dead Sea Scrolls:
   A Reappraisal_ London: Penguin, 1956, pp.66-73.  Pity the fragment
   code you gave threw me off.
