Saturday, December 21, 1912 (continued)

The thieves were probably the same ones who dug the holes in the courtyard G 2381 - G 2382, and were thus previous to the Roman communal burial in G 2370.
Lower down, among the rocks, we came on the arms of the larger statue [12-12-206], the right one bent at the elbow, the left hanging. The bent right arm formerly held a stick. The arms are not in good condition, nor are the feet.
Near by was another arm, hanging left arm of the smaller statuette (apparently).
