Notes

This Geniculate bannerstone is a nearly complete preform. The geniculate form is well-expressed with a finely carved thin edge. The stone is polished, though no perforation has been drilled. The shape of the stone has been carved to accentuate the concentric dark banding. There are several large off-white inclusions on both sides of the stone. There are two uneven areas along the edge which may be due to the preform, unfinished state of the stone. 266 and A 266/6427 are written in black along one edge.

Date
