Sunday, April 11, 1926 (continued)

(3) G 7000 X (continued)
No. 341: Another sheet of gold also from molded plaster.
No. 342: A gold band [ILLUSTRATION]

Nos. 340 - 342 obscured the group of molded plaster and displaced inlays which lay in the middle between 335 and 336, 337, 338 and 339.
On removing 342, a gold sign [GLYPH] was seen face down underneath. By position this was north of the [GLYPH] of the middle vertical line of hieroglyphic, that is above [GLYPH] as the inscription stood upright in its original position. [It appears probable that a separate sign had fallen out of the inscription before the general collapse.]
