Notes

This bannerstone has a rounded spine on the face and a squared spine on the back. The patina on over the surface indicates that the chips on the right lower edge were occurred before burial. It was excavated along with seven other bannerstones by A. E. Douglass in 1881. Published in “A Find of Ceremonial Axes in a Florida Mound,” The American Antiquarian (1882): 104; and in Bruce John Piatek, “The Tomoka Mound Complex in Northeastern Florida,” Southeastern Archaeology Winter (1994) 109-118.
