I don’t have a copy at hand but Kim Haines-Eitzen discussed nomina sacra in her dissertation, revised as a book, “Guardians of Letters, 2000.”

Re: Did Morton salt Mar Saba?

That Smith published in 1958 a 41-page article on Philosophumena, a text that mentions a variant version or interpretation of gMark—maybe coincidence.

Re: Did Morton salt Mar Saba?

M. Smith, "The Descriptions of the Essenes in Josephus and the. Philosophumena," HUCA 29 (1958) pp. 273-313. Somewhere, if I recall correctly, Shaye Cohen wrote that Smith later changed his mind about this article’s proposal (about the relation of the two texts).
