This article started with the discovery that sign 11 was preceded by sign 76 on the Santiago Staff in 28 occurrences out of 35, and that this digraph, 76-11, occurred only on lines I, 2, 3, 4, 12, 13, and 14. The Staff bearing 14 lines, this suggested that these seven lines constituted a continuous text starting on line 12. Searching for corroborating evidence led to unexpected, and disturbing, observations.
