Chapter Summary

This appendix section contains notes and comments on readings in 4QZodiacal Physiognomy (4Q186) and 4QPhysiognomy AR (4Q561). New reconstructions and interpretations of these learned lists are offered that result in a fresh view of their sense, function, and status within both the Qumran community and Second Temple Judaism at large, showing that Jewish culture in Palestine participated in the cultural exchange of learned knowledge between Babylonian and Greco-Roman cultures.

Keywords: 4QPhysiognomy AR (4Q561); 4QZodiacal Physiognomy (4Q186)
