English Text:

The south part and south facade of the Palace is very eroded. Today one can only see foundations on tiered levels. At the bottom, a tower-like projection is all that remains of the south entrance to the Palace. An ascending corridor led to the Central Court.

The section of the corridor closest to the Central Court is reconstructed. Evans put a copy of a relief wall painting here, of which only a few fragments were found (Figure 1). On these it was possible to make out a figure wearing jewelry in the shape lilies. The reconstruction you see here is uncertain. In Evan's opinion, it represented the "Priest-King". Other scholars think that it is prince, whilst others believe it depicts a female figure.
