Under and behind 364 - 365 were the two sides of a wing leaning against west wall with inlays back to back. Against these on east are parts of the "lily" (L) and over all is a long band of (Z). (Y) also overlies wing. Thus here (Y), (Z), and (L) are over W; while on the east (W) was over (Z) and (L), and all were over (W).
A new layer of objects were thus exposed partially covered with dust, decayed wood crumbled plaster and gesso. Proceeded to clear away this rubbish with pincers and then wet brush.
