Notes

This is a heavily reworked bannerstone that began as a Butterfly or some other kind of similarly winged stone. It has been re-carved down to just the center of the original and incised with marks along all four edges. Nine similar variants are published by David Lutz in The Archaic Bannerstone, 2000, p 351.
