(1) G 7000 X (continued)
All this clearing today was designed to expose more of the inlay stuff to permit its study.
At this point attempted to remove 259, a crumpled sheet of gold which lay against the front of the large leg (bed leg?) along west wall. But 259 was engaged under inlays and had to be left but disengaged from the bed leg (261).
Removed two displaced inlays (260) lying on bed leg 261.
Took up bed by 261. Front leg. right side of bed.

After long discussion, decided that the next step must be the removal of the wing on the east of this area. Among the confused inlays under 261 are remnants of an inlaid wing. By working out the separated well-preserved wing first, we will be better able to separate the confused parts on the west.
