P. 252, 1. 36. While this chapter was passing through the press Mr. F. H. Andrews informed me of his having discovered, among the objects brought back from Tibet by the late expedition, and now deposited in the British Museum, a suit of mail, evidently old, which shows the plates or scales arranged in the reversed order exactly as on the Kubera image of the Dandan-Uiliq shrine and in the Gandhara example. The plates are not rivetted but ingeniously threaded, by a method which is illustrated in the accompanying diagram of Mr. Andrews. The disposition of the holes, one at the rounded end and three on each of the longer sides, is exactly the same as in the piece of hard leather, N. xv. 005 (see diagram, p. 4 x r ), and thus strikingly confirms the suggestion made regarding the latter (p. 374) that it belonged to a scale armour.
