Lemma 34.10.3. A standard ph covering is a standard V covering.

**Proof.**
Let $T$ be an affine scheme. Let $f : U \to T$ be a proper surjective morphism. Let $U = \bigcup _{j = 1, \ldots , m} U_ j$ be a finite affine open covering. We have to show that $\{ U_ j \to T\} $ is a standard V covering, see Definition 34.8.1. Let $g : \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(V) \to T$ be a morphism where $V$ is a valuation ring with fraction field $K$. Since $U \to T$ is surjective, we may choose a field extension $L/K$ and a commutative diagram

By Algebra, Lemma 10.50.2 we can choose a valuation ring $W \subset L$ dominating $V$. By the valuative criterion of properness (Morphisms, Lemma 29.42.1) we can then find the morphism $h$ in the commutative diagram

Since $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(W)$ has a unique closed point, we see that $\mathop{\mathrm{Im}}(h)$ is contained in $U_ j$ for some $j$. Thus $h : \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(W) \to U_ j$ is the desired lift and we conclude $\{ U_ j \to T\} $ is a standard V covering. $\square$
