Notice: The Mystery Scroll is an item brought to the United States before the 1970 UNSECO accord ban on importing antiquities. This item has been authenticated by a Professor in Art History and Archaeology, who serves on the UCLA/Getty Program in Archaeological and Ethnographic Conservation, housed at the Getty Villa site in Malibu, California. I’m looking for someone -- perhaps a student in the Greater Boston Massachusetts area -- who needs a challenge developing their skills. It has been said that the Scroll has Greek, Hebrew, and Latin or Phoenician symbols. This is a non-paying challenge. It may very well be a great start to a young career.
