Where is "Le Discorde et la Guerre"?

Could that be that they left them out for Osipova's performance but they still reconstructed it...?
From the clip I recognize:
2-Valse des Heures
4-La Priere-(Our "Prayer")
5-Le Travail-(rechoreographed as the extra female variation that follows the Adage in the PDD). We can also recognize it as our Franz variation.
5-Could this be "L’Hymne"? ...not sure. (Honestly, according to the costume design and the props in the ballerinas' hands, this looks to me as "Le Travail", but don't mind me...I'm only guessing...
6-Now, HERE it should be "La Discorde et La Guerre"...Where is it...?
7-And HERE there should had followed, originally, "La Paix"- (which was reinserted in the PDD as the Adage... by Petipa? ...not sure )
Grand PDD-(Danse de Fete)
1-Adage-(which turned out to be the original "La Paix" that followed "La Discorde et La Guerre")
2-Extra female variation, originally "Le Travail"- (which originally followed "La Priere", which it is said to had been choreographed back then to the same music of Sylvia's PDD male varaition, now also included as Franz variation almost everywhere, including MCB).
3-Franz Variation. (Music is not by Delibes, but by the French-American composer Ernest Guiraud)
Any clues, anybody...?

...am I to assume that Balanchine was the one responsible for its revival more than half a century after it was notated...?
Allow me to answer my own question. There's a pic in Octavio Roca's book of a 15 year old Alicia Alonso dancing with boyfriend Fernando the divertissement in the 1935 Yavorsky-after-Merante staging for Pro Arte Musical, 1935 Havana. Fernando is wearing what appears to be a golden Roman helmet and is bare chested. Alicia wears a chiffon Greek-inspired tunic and a golden laurel wreath as a headpiece.
