(1) G 7000 X
Drew plan of (Q) inlays under 542 and on 521, suppl. to page 480.

Put in new 1000 c-p lamp in portable reflector.

Examined under edge of pile of gold sheets east of palm capital (see *A3886). The rilled stones (ii on photo) are over the discs (i). Under the edge of the sheet (iv) runs a stick of wood (iii) which appears to be associated with (S)-2. Sheet (ix) runs back under sheet (v). The F-inlays on (iv-v) run under (vi). It is quite clear that we must work off viii, vii, vi, v and iv before we can go on intelligently with iii and ii, and the lower layer of inlays.
So we turned again to the west wall.
