Drew a new plan of 411 as at this stage.
(73)-(104) from (Y).
It is now clear that the gold bands and sheets under 411 do not belong to the large sheet (Y)-2 or (Y)-1; that the large sheet (Y)-1 overlay No. 411; that the displaced pieces of (Y) found in 411 had fallen down from (Y)-1.
It is necessary to get (Z)-3 out of the wood and as a first step to remove the rest of the middle vertical line of hieroglyphs.
The photo of the hieroglyphs is *A3773.
*A3796: the area under 411
