By "unique Qumran version" do you mean what E.Tov has called "free"
citations or do you mean citations from a independent text type known to
exist at Qumran among the DSS canonical texts? I assume you mean the later.
Would be nice to hear from someone who can offer a counter example. Can
anyone show us an undisputable LXX reading used in a DSS 'sectarian' text?
