QUMRAN INKWELLS

Three inkwells (one bronze and two ceramic) recovered in the Qumran excavations (two in the so-called scriptorium) may suggest that scrolls were copied at the settlement.

A bronze inkwell supposedly found at Qumran by Bedouin around 1950 was sold by Kando to a Norwegian collector.
