  Absent for unknown reasons, never was present

This decan is associated only with the T family. It occurs on all T-type DSTs.

The decan consistently appears on the same diagonal strip beginning with (1,12) for tables T1 to T10 with some exceptions. T4 duplicates the decan on both sides of the vertical band along row 2. In T8, the decan is inserted between two cells (5,7) and (6,7) such that three decans occupy the two cells.  In T10, the (1,12) diagonal is lost among the damage except for a single occurence at (10,3).

The remaining two tables, T11 and T12, do not have the decan appearing along the (12,1) diagonal. In T11, the decan appears in four positions along the (2,9) diagonal and again in three other locations off the diagonal.  In T12, we have a complete diagonal beginning with (2,12) and crossing both the horizontal and vertical strips.
