ORIGINAL DEAD SEA SCROLL FRAGMENT? Two epigraphic fragments on papyrus [DEAD SEA SCROLL FRAGMENT?] A small white leather pouch (depicted in photos) with what appears to be two epigraphic fragments on papyrus (approx. 2.5 x 1.5 cm; 4 x 1.5 cm respectively). Light old pen to the leather pouch indicates'MUR 17', which corresponds to the 'earliest manuscript identified among the Dead Sea Scrolls' (Note: Another fragment from Mur 17 for comparison is listed on this site The pouch and fragment were purchased form the library of Rev. Donald L Magnetti, PhD in Near Eastern Studies and professor at Fordham Law School.(See obituary here: The fragment was found laid into a volume of a set Discoveries in the Judaean Desert. Oxford, 1955- 1968.Authenticity: There is no way that I can determine if these small fragments are indeed Dead Sea Scroll fragments or not or if they have anything to do with MUR 17. While on a cursory examination, there appears to be an indication of Hebrew letters, and the papyrus is certainly ancient, there are many ancient epigraphic fragments that are not from the Dead sea scrolls. I have not had the fragments professionally examined, and while they are certainly worthy of additionalresearch, they can only be sold 'as is' with no guarantee of authenticity (it is simply beyond my expertise). In fact, I would be highly skeptical that they are actual Dead Sea scroll fragments. Needless to say they are an intriguing and fun curiosity.
