(a) Our Mishnah states that all the Midos in the Mikdash were Gadush
(heaped) except for one.
Which one? Why was that?
(b) Why did that one not need to be Gadush?
(c) What distinction does the Tana make between Midas ha'Lach and Midas
ha'Yavesh with regard to the Birutzin (that what spills over the side)?
(d) Rebbi Akiva ascribes this to the fact that the former (Midas ha'Lach) is
itself sanctified, whereas the latter is not. Rebbi Yossi maintains that
both Keilim are sanctified.
Then why the difference between the Birutzei
Lach and the Birutzei Yavesh?

anointed both inside and outside.

seeing as the owner did not intend them to.

if the latter are then burned on the following Shabbos?
(b) What should the Kohanim have done? Why might we have thought otherwise?
