      inscriptions by magnifier and witnessed that he didn't see a sign of
      falsification. He made paper prints from 7 inscriptions dated since
      875 to 983 A.D., but he didn't guarantee their authenticity. That
      materials were transferred to Asian Museum in Saint-Petersburg, and
      unfortunately not found till present.

      Serge,

      Thank you for posting all this information about the Crimea. I
      found your summary of the history very interesting and evocative. I
      was looking at some photographs of Mangup recently on the internet.
      It's certainly a spectacular place, isn't it. Regarding these
      inscriptions: do you know any more about their content? Were they
      names on graves? Has anything been published about them?

      One more question: was there any difference in the way the skulls of
      males and females were deformed, or was the practise the same for
      both?
