Notes

This bannerstone is 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. There are deep grooves on the inner curve of one of the notched sides indicating carving techniques for these kinds of complex shapes. The thin and thick light veins distinguish the natural stone.
