Notes

This bannerstone was broken at the spine 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. Both pieces are intact and have been glued together. There is a large chip at the bottom of the stone at the perforation. Published in Knoblock (1939) Pl. 214, no. 9.
