Good introductory video Jenny! One thing that’s important that has been proven repeatable in the 3 found casques is the actual orientation of the gem in each image. Chicago - gem is hanging below a loop earring....hint that it’s in the South Loop neighborhood where Grant Park is located. Cleveland - gem is surrounded by square grey object....hint that it’s in a cement planter. Boston - gem is being held by the fairy diagonally, rather than square....hint that it’s in a ball diamond.
Some of the others we just haven’t interpreted the gem orientation correctly. Once we do it will narrow the dig locations for the remaining casques significantly. Have an idea where a couple of the remaining casques could be using this methodology. It’s 3/3 with the found casques, stands to reason it works for all 12.
Also Th. north of X riddle can be explained 2 ways. If X is the dig spot then north of it would be Th. or third base. If X is homeplate then north would still be third base (Th.) Xenophon literally means 'sounds like xeno'. Zero sounds like xeno. Call the homeplate zero base!
Makes sense to me, always thought it was up the 3rd base line where it intersected the light standard. It would be very much like the intersection of fence and fixture in Chicago. Of course we will never know, but makes more sense than being buried directly under home plate IMHO.

Looking at the Chicago puzzle for the first time, Preiss was very specific with the coordinates in that image. He gave 2 numbers past the decimal point for latitude and longitude. I really didn't see where he gave the exact spot of the casque unless the clue "Central too", meant the casque was centered between the end point of 10 x 13 and the fence and fixture.
So to continue on the image 11 methodology for image 1, the map of Pier 39 is in the dragon's wing. Accurate to the block numbers. Also dragon claws may form 39. Similarly T & X riddle for SF could be the E & J riddle. This could be the intersection of Embarcadero and Jefferson, right in front of Pier 39 which is next to Pier 43, stonewall's door? Fits nicely to Chinese immigration and travel from Angel Isl.
