Notes

This may be a preform or a stone that was begun but not yet finished. In contrast to most preforms it is more fully formed in shape and is pecked over the front and back with both of its edges polished. This degree of pecking and polish is uncharacteristic of preforms that are left less defined in shape and surface. There is a a 0.3cm perforation with an apparent nipple on one side.
