Phylactery (tefillin), found in a cave at Qumran with some of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Three of the original four scripture texts of this early first-century A.D. phylactery were found intact in their niches, thus affording unique evidence of the way the parchment slips had been folded and tied and of the material used for tying. The texts of these parchments were published by Yadin just one year after he acquired them in 1968.
