    Jim,

    the papyrus mentioned in a range of articles in 2009 is the source of the photograph that has been used for illustrative purposes in the recent articles by David Israel – not the papyrus that is in the process of being announced

    Jim,

    could not locate the first report of the papyrus in Makor Rishon but the upcoming presentation on the papyrus is mentioned at http://archaeology.huji.ac.il/archfiles/Kenes10Jerusalem_invitation.pdf
    Presentation will be by Shmuel Ahitav as well as Ethan Klein and Amir Ganor, with a response by Haggai Misgav and Aaron Demsky
