And why is the area near the wall kept clear? Someone suggests
it is to allow the city to expand, but Baldanders says it isn't
for that. Later we learnt that the city was razed, so maybe the
gaps were bomb sites, cleared by war, but that doesn't explain
why they are not rebuilt.

I still want to know what Agilus' ribbon was for. One of the
more mystifying shards.
