The list of the priestly mishmarot (divisions, courses, watches) turned up on an inscription uncovered in the excavations at Caesarea in 1962. This discovery is briefly discussed by Ray Pritz in his “He Shall Be Called a Nazarene.” For a fuller discussion, see Shmuel Safrai’s “A Priest of the Division of Abijah.”
