Notes on typology 2001-06-13 lR humanoid figurine [Input: L818LR3.j]
2001-06-26 rAH As this figure is from Khabur levels, usage may in fact change. Certainly the manufacture and fabric is different than the corpus from the Royal Building. [Input: N206RAH.j]
2001-06-26 rAH This is a problematic object because it is so fragmentary. Re-oriented, it might even be the horns of a large caprid, although no other details indicate the Genus, and the caudal join at the crown would have to be quite narrow. A typological parallel might be the rider and horse from Chuera that is displayed at the Damascus Museum in Case 26; acc #2476, although the "fork" of the rider is quite lower in the Chuera figure. Further research would be necessary to determine if the levels are in fact coeval; our object is from Khabour levels. The Chuera figurine is, if I am not mistaken, from Ur III levels. Check also more exact parallels of the form with the equids/riders of Tello/Girsu. [Input: N206RAH.j]
2001-06-26 rAH coarse, heavy chaff temper [Input: N206RAH.j]

Assumption 2001-06-26 rAH The figurine has a blackened core, not unlike cooking pots. I have not encountered such coarse ware elsewhere in the corpus; although the surface finishing is apparent, and one edge of the leg has been rounded and smoothed repeatedly. [Input: N206RAH.j]
