Query I: the stone tablets were put there by grave robbers. Ma Weidu, a collector said on his blog that the tablets and pillow, which were carved with the characters "Wei Wu Wang", were not excavated from the tomb, but bought there by grave robbers. So, they could not be taken as absolute proof of the tomb's owner.

Response: Shang Jinshan, an archaeological expert from Henan province, said he dug out the stone tablets himself, 4 among the more than 50 of them with the characters "Wei Wu Wang". But, the stone pillow was actually bought from a grave robber, who admitted he stole the pillow from this tomb.
