24 In any case, by c. 480, the crushing dearth of funds, the mounting dangers of the roads, and (most immediately) the probable flaring up of war in the region, now put a sudden and irrevocable halt to the spate of anxious votive intrusions that represented the site’s last dying gasp. Incidentally, it is intriguing to note that the very last “gifts” at the site may have included the plastering of the monks’ cells in Cave 1 and many other caves. —of the Period of Disruption. Equally surprising is the fact that no cell at the site was ever plastered prior to 477, well after many of them had been utilized for residence.

However, the knowledge of what was planned in the emperor’s cave would of course have been common knowledge from the start and would surely have stimulated the common drive for shrines containing the new images in every cave where it was possible.
