Contains some potential K list triangle decans in the lower left quadrant. The confusion in the table is particularly annoying for the researcher, as this is the type K table with the largest number of columns, and hence the "longest" K list if we can trust it. Decan 24 tpy-a Axwy only occurs once in a damaged cell, and decan 30 sAwy qd is not present for unknown reasons. Its omission here is the only case amongst four tables (K1, K2, K3, K4) whose decan list reaches this far.
