You're right, it was Khim that disenchanted it - found him and Ibun.

If I had kept the ring of the mouse maybe I could have pulled the vault 1 at a time.

Vaults with high level monsters are dangerous. They might also contain shriekers or hounds and vortices which are always awake and could wake other monsters.
Without a means of teleport other (or banishment) and speed vaults are very risky.

A 'detect monsters' shows 16 big dragons 4x4 and nothing else, so unless the shriekers can stack, it looks like there aren't any.

I don't have any of that right now - I even used my speed on a previous unique. I do have a hold monster wand to get some arrows in.

I am not aware of a 4 by 4 pit. It sounds like a monster pit with dragons, probably some really dangerous in the middle.
It might not be worth the effort.

A big cluster of dragons sounds like Glaurung or Ancalagon, unique dragons who show up with other dragons as escorts, and who are absolutely not easy pickings. Remember to use the 'l' command to examine what you can "see" in detail!

I'm not sure if the look command will work before I can see them linf of sight - this is just from a spell that shows them one turn.

Ya, I'd have to guess the only way to do this might be if steal was so high as to get one at a time, and even then it sounds dangerous.

I'm not at all sure I could kill a named big dragon. Even a normal big dragon, who knows.

Uh oh, hearing multiple 'door bursting' messages as I head that direction, in a fight with mobs in the hall like a 'killer iridescent beetle'.

If you were to try the look command, you would find that it is perfectly capable of looking at things that are not in line-of-sight.
