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. Scratches and the letters H H H are incised on either side of the perforation. These markings post-date the archaic origin of the carving.
