The pseudepigrapha in the paleoblogosphere

OLD TESTAMENT PSEUDEPIGRAPHA WATCH—Some recent blog posts of interest:

Duane Smith has an abnormally interesting post on Aḥiqar: The Wolf And The Snake.

At Rogue Classicism, David Meadows links to Barbara Zaragoza's Delphi, Greece: In Search of Sibyls. She's looking for the Greek Sibyls rather than the later Jewish and Christian versions in the Sibylline Oracles, but still. More on the Sibylline Oracles here, here, here, here, and here.

Slactivist Fred Clark: The Nephilim fossil of upstate New York. (Via Remnant of Giants.) The story of the Nephilim is told more fully in the Book of Giants.

And sort of relevant (on the PGM, and Old Testament material is involved too): Roger Pearse: Jesus in the Greek Magical Papyri and More on Jesus in the Greek Magical Papyri.
