Notes on items 2014-03-30 rAH    The excavator has correctly identified a caprid head, although that the muzzle curves down is most unusual and not typical of the species; that the muzzle is somewhat foreshortened accentuates this anomaly. Comparative Table 8 can be consulted, although these exemplars are all Ovis. For the rather more narrow muzzle of Capra, it is necessary to consult Comparative Tables 2 and 2A. In general, the horns of Capra sweep up and back; the horns of Ovis curve downwards. It is incorrect to say that the horns are "in high relief." They are simply obvious, being manufactured from separate pieces of clay and applied to the head. [Input: Y401JW1.j]
