I think Bill Albright was correct in his assignment of the dating of the NP
(JBL 56 (1937) p.145 and I think the palaeography enhancement of the
period by the DSS bear him out over Kahle whose cites I am sure you have.
Of course, my passion for palaeography and Dr. Albright having taught me
have nothing to do with my opinion <g>
