ORION is the Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem. The e-list has closed, but the site is still
operative with bibliographies and articles remaining available.
Zoilos is at:

PS: Jack, if the WAW was only vocalic, then somebody had better explain why
the ca. 9th-BCE so-called digamma of Ionian Greek is the *consonantal* VAV
-- that's why it was later dropped. The voiced phoneme was covered by
voiced beta and the unvoiced phoneme was covered by phi. The vocalic WAW is
upsilon. WAW is also consonantal in the earliest Etruscan (ca. 10th-8th BCE).
