        Yes, this is noted on the home page in the section entitled "The
        photographs". To save you trouble in your search for truth, I quote the
        following from there:

        The letters from El-Amarna whose photographs are published are the
        following (according to EA numeration): EA 2, 4, 6, 8, 11-13, 18, 20,
        21, 24, 29, 33, 38, 42, 44-48, 50, 51, 54, 56-58, 60, 62, 65-68, 70-72,
        76-81, 84, 89-93, 95-98, 103, 105-112, 115, 117-122, 126, 127, 129, 130,
        133, 138, 140, 143-146, 152, 154-157, 159, 162-171, 173-175, 177-179,
        181-183, 185, 186, 189, 192-194, 196, 200-204, 207, 208, 210-212, 214,
        217-219, 221-223, 226, 229, 231, 232, 234, 237-239, 241-243, 246, 249,
        253-255, 257-259, 263, 265, 266, 268, 271, 273, 275, 276, 279, 281, 283,
        285-291, 295, 300, 302, 307-312, 317, 319, 321, 326, 329, 332, 334-339
        and 381.

        It goes on to say:

        These and any other omissions will be rectified whenever possible.

          At <http://amarna.ieiop.csic.es/> there is only the Amarna Berlin
          collection. EA 151 is at the British Museum; you can obtain a good photo of
          it (as of other Amarna tablets at BM) at the site of the BM
          <http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/search_the_collection_database/museum_number_search.aspx>;
          EA 153 is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; I know no digital photo of it,
          nor of the Amarna collection at Cairo.

            Dear Alessandro,

            Thank you for the French version of Jehasse -- I did not compare it with the English, but I will try to use it as a guide to the intent of the English. But how many changes are there between the two versions?
