David Meadows has spotted that Evans is NOT using documenting photos of the mask that was used to recover the new Mark fragment - but one that is still intact (thankfully it did not get in the hands of private collectors) in an Australian public collection. Note caption here: "This mummy mask was one of the masks that the researchers took apart to reveal ancient papyri. This mummy mask is similar to the one that contained the first century gospel fragment. Credit: Courtesy of Prof. Craig Evans". As I said, it is Ptolemaic.
