The most common material found in T23: 1979 Extentions was ivory. for the most part, all of the ivory has two features in common. First, most of it is burned to a very dark black [very little of the ivory is blue or white]. And second, most of the ivory has one flat, finished surface - which suggests that they were used as insets. Aside from these two features, the ivory from T23: 1979 Extentions consists of many different shapes and sizes. Geometric shapes are the most common; triangles [Book III, p.125: 1979015319790232 19790230 19790236 19790206 19790221
Many of these geometric-shaped ivory insets are decorated with incision; the incision consists of
various linear patterns. Fragments decorated with gioche patterns, checkerboards, palmettes [Book II, p.101: 1979022519790227
In addition to many fragments of incised, geometric-shaped insets, T23: 1979 Extentions also produced two significant fragments of carved ivory. One is a human head [Book III, p.1: 19790181
account the tool markings on the other surface, that the head was never completed. The second fragment of carved ivory is half-round in shape and decorated with a meander pattern [Book II, p.235: #203].
Although ivory was found throughout T23: 1979 Extentions, it was concentrated most heavily in the Tile Layer in meters FF-HH/13-15. This is the same area in which bronze was most heavily concentrated.
T23: 1979 Extentions\' most significant find is a sphinx carved stag horn [Book III, p.91: 19790180
