Condition The preserved portion is broken on one end, and the surface is worn.
Description A portion of worked ivory, cylindrical in shape, is preserved. On one side there is a flat surface less than 0.001 m wide which gives the fragment a horseshoe shaped profile. At the intact end of the fragment are two incised lines. The lines do not encircle the entire fragment, but stop at each edge of the flat surface. The lines segment the preserved fragment into three bands. The top band is extremely thin. The middle band is thicker than the top band, but it is still less than 0.001 m in width. The third segment is approximately 0.002 m in width. At the break edge, it appears that another line had been incised continuing the segmented pattern, but the fragment broke off at that weak point.
