Dunham suggests that the board had inlays on both sides. There remains at least one more flower element of bright gold leaf and a number of vertical inlays. This makes at least six flower elements and seven strip elements, 13 x 6.5 cm = 84.5 cm. If the two silvery elements were on back then 4 + 5 = 9 x 6.5 cm = 58.5 cm which would suit the width of stool (ii). The two silvery elements were close together.
