As of 2010, E. Tigchelaar records all newly discovered fragments from the Judean Desert in a master list in which he designates new numbers according to a central system. Ultimately, these fragments are to be republished in a separate volume of newly discovered fragments in the series Dead Sea Scrolls Editions.

  • Fragments a, b and c ( from r. to l.) of dss F.Amos.1 (Amos 7:17–8:1) dating to the beginning of the 1st century c.e. including a reconstruction of the missing letters. The shapes of most letters have been copied from letters written elsewhere in the document. Image slightly adapted in order to compensate for the warping of the skin, the split of the second he of yhwh in line 3 and for the slight droop of both ends of l. 3.
