Sunday, April 4, 1926 (continued)

(3) G 7000 X (continued)
To obtain view of (Q) we now removed No. 327.
No. 327: Gold sheath of rectangular bar with beveled ends.
[ILLUSTRATION]
Inside was a shriveled bar (parted in the middle) with four cross dowels. The actual length was 27.8 cm having shrunk from 52 (or almost one-half)
[ILLUSTRATION]
The cut outs on this side indicate three wooden bars running at right angles to 327. The two side bars were Nos. 253 and 328 which had no gold on the back. [ILLUSTRATION]
It has been assumed that the gold hieroglyphs came from the wood showing in these open backs and we have three vertical lines of hieroglyphs. The top end of the middle line was formed in the middle cut out in 327 lying face down.
For some reason, we removed 328, the south end of which was covered with decayed wood, but we were able to draw 328 out without serious disturbance.
No. 328: The companion side bar to 253.
*A3753
*A3754
Inlays (Q) runs continuously under 327 and 328. A few more inlays of (W) were exposed lying in (Q).
No. 326: (64)-(77)
Cleaned off (Q) with wet brush.
