Such an inventory number belongs to pre-war finds rearranged after World-War II in the new epigraphical storeroom under the direction of Goodchild. The inventory number (3489) given by Morelli should be a more ancient one no longer in use (or might alternatively be the number of an ancient photograph in the Department of Antiquities archive).
