There are two women on the back row wearing veils in the Ladies Choice picture (SC p84) who are almost certainly Sun County females. Considering that the females on the front row are easily identifiable with characters in the text, I hardly think they are Orlanthi. One is wearing a dark veil with light clothing and the other is reversed.
