notes on items 2014-3-30 rAH    Once again, a fragmentary representation. The excavator feels that this is, I presume, a quadruped. This is far from certain. I would prefer to see this artifact as a badly eroded ram's head (V22d3790), although that identification is equally uncertain. Compare with A1.479, Ovis 33, a perforated exemplar from the royal storehouse. See also a comparative example from Tepe Gawra on page 171. Also see Comparative Table 8. The curved "knob" (V22d3790) is surprising. I know of only one similar detail, and this is the tail of Ovis II 203 (plate XV, page 488).
   I fear this artifact has been overcleaned; some detail may have been brushed away. The lighting of the photographs, uniform, does not help in analyzing detail.
   I have been unable to locate k105 on a grid within the Global Record. Several interesting exemplars have been recovered there. I thus am at a loss to ascertain their relationship to other artifacts in this unit.
