(Plate 4, Object 68, site C)

The hammer falls
The blade cuts
The nut is crushed
The head falls
Only one rolls away.1.

1. Accounts associated with this frieze seem to indicate that the unnameable king, whose ultimate fate may have been decapitation (though evidence gathered by Dr. R. Morgan seems to indicate that he had a Rasputin-like resistance to fatal injury) escaped by “rolling away” in the night and only later reconnecting his head with his body.
