Ludwig Koenen (Michigan) left for Amman a few days ago;
he will be the first papyrologist to have a look and to
give technical advice on the unrolling. Maybe then more
will be known about the contents of the papyri. Some of
the writing has been identified as not being Greek. If
it's Syriac, bets are the texts are biblical; if Nabataean,
they are probably documentary papyri--some of them, anyway.
