Abstract: In Albert Ganado’s letter in The Sunday Times of Malta of February 4, 2018, on the curious Latin inscription over the Main Guard, he had written that it had been removed and broken because of weathering. That is what actually happened to the Royal Arms and he assumed that the fate of the inscription went with it. Ganado has since come across another entry in the manuscript Giornale of Cesare Vassallo dated April 27, 1863, in which he wrote that restoration of the portico was taken in hand because the cornicione (entablature) was deteriorating, not because it was old, but due to the poor quality of the stone.
