Actually the Dura-Europos fragment may well not be a fragment of
Tatian. We have been working on the fragment here in Birmingham and
shortly our article on this should be published. It features a new
reconstruction of the text as well as documentation of the
unlikelihood that this is part of the Diatessaron.
