Updates to the Sanhedrin Courthouses

In the last post I explained that something was not quite right about how I depicted the judicial scribes of the Temple's sanhedrin courthouses. Here are two updated images.

The first image shows a minor sanhedrin court with two scribes (light blue robes) standing to either side of the judges. I don't know whether they kept their supplies in a desk near their post or perhaps they had a clerk who would bring them more parchment and ink as needed.

In the next image you can see the same scribes at work in the Chamber of Hewn Stone, recording the proceedings of the great sanhedrin of seventy-one judges.
