Notes

This bannerstone is broken at the spine on the lower portion of the right wing and broken 3.0 cm in from the spine on the upper portion of the right wing. These breaks are either because the stone is weakest at the thin surface of the spine or because it was intentionally broken at the spine as is common with bannerstones. The upper right wing fragment appears to be reworked and polished, as it is 0.3 cm lower than the left wing. This is an exceedingly fine-carved piece with thin wings and a pronounced high ridge at the spine on both faces.
