Alleged Provenance
“The remaining fragments [Gen 36:7–16; Gen 37:8; Num 16:2–5; Deut 32:5–9; 1 Sam 5:10–11; 1 Kgs 16:23–26; Jer 3:15–19] published in this volume came from a distinguished family collection, which was based in Lebanon c. 1965–69. It was moved to Europe in 1969 and kept in Zurich from 1993. Nearly all these fragments were purchased from the Bedouin between 1952 and 1956 and were also believed to come from Cave 4. I know the identity of the owners of this family collection, but the family asked me to be so kind as not to reveal it, which I hereby honour.”
