This decan occurs in both the T family (where it serves as both an ordinary decan and a triangle decan) and the K family.

The decan consistently appears on the same diagonal strip beginning with (9,12) for tables T1 to T12 with some exceptions: in T6, the diagonal is broken after column 13. In T7 and T8 it starts in (13,12) and is broken after the vertical strip. In T4, it starts in (8,12) and in T12 in (10,12). In T11 the decan’s probable appearances are masked by damage.

As a triangle decan, it appears on T1, T6, T7, and T8.  In T1, T7, and T8, its diagonal starts in (33,12). In T6 it starts in (33,11) instead (it does not appear in column 32 at all).

In the list columns of T1, the decan appears in (C2,5) and (C2,7) - the second of these as a mistake for another ordinary decan. In T6 it is omitted from the list columns for unknown reasons. In both T7 and T8 it occurs in the list columns in (C2,5). It never, therefore, appears as a triangle decan in any T family list columns.

Axwy occurs on K-type tables K1, K2, K4, K8, K10, and K11. It is omitted in K3 for unknown reasons. In all other K tables it is missing because it is in part of the table that was not included through lack of space or part of the table that has not survived. It only shows a stable diagonal pattern in K4, starting (14,12).
