Notes

This Geniculate is a finely sculpted and polished shale preform with no perforation. The sloping long edge is squared and the shorter edge at the bottom has a subtle groove, common for these shapes. There are a few gauges on the inner edge that appear historical where 251/150 is written. Similar to Knoblock p. 251, no. 7.

Date

6000-1000 BCE
