text: (63) Old site of Terocheswumi. As the old men looked for a site, they found here two stones already erected, as they thought by ghosts, therefore they thought it must be a lucky site. Thevoni was thinking that because the 2 stones faced different sides the village went down. "If we would erect 2 stones in that way either the man or the woman would, (sic) of there would a least be a divorce."
