UPDATE ON THE TEN COMMANDMENTS SCROLL at the Royal Ontario Museum Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition: Last week while I was in transit from San Diego, reader Daniel A. Machiela e-mailed:
Just a note on your earlier post on the 10 commandments scroll. I was to the ROM twice that week and it was indeed 4QDeutn, and not the Nash Papyrus, that was on display. I gave a tour through the exhibit a week ago Friday and the place was absolute chaos. They were turning away hundreds of people who wanted to see the scroll (including us...) - I guess interest in our line of work has not waned!
Thanks for the clarification.

Background here.
