After the Christmas period and a good toast to the new year, on January 9th we re-opened the tomb and two days later we resumed work. The panel of our mission stood out again majestically in the courtyard. This time we raised our tent in a new location that we deemed more appropriate considering the future work to be done.

The "second phase" of the mission will mainly focus on concluding the epigraphic study of the transversal hall and writing the required reports for each specialization (archaeological, epigraphic, ...) in order to organize work of future campaigns.

We are currently finishing copying the stela located on the west wall and studying the position of the scenes on the walls of the transversal room. These scenes are thematically grouped and sequentially arranged, a characteristic that can be found also in other tombs in the area.

Tomorrow we will not work; it's prophet Muhammad's birthday, so it's holiday for everybody.
