Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Cnossos, wall of little palace".
Notes Dates based on the image appearing in Maraghiannis' publication of his images of Knossos in 1915 and Grace Holding's other images of Knossos deposited with the SPHS by 1924. The image appears in Maraghiannis (1915) with the following description: "Mur extérieur du 'Petit Palais', à l'Ouest du grand palais. Notre planche donne un bonne idée de la construction minoenne. Les blocs ne sont que la façade d'un mur épais de moëllons, Cette méthode est employée même dans le grand palais. BSA. 1904/5, 2ff. Evans, Tomb of the Double Axes (Archaeologia LXV 1914) 76."
