LOCATION Found in a mixed lot excavated in Structure F4-6 (Becquelin and Gaudez 1982, vol 6, part 2, p. 1017).
CONDITION The bone has been split in two longitudinally, and its upper portion later broken off. The engraved glyphs that survive on it are clear. For secondary use, perhaps as a trinket, the bone was further trimmed and grooved from the base upward (very likely a similar groove for suspension was made in the now missing upper portion).
MATERIAL Portion of a long bone, perhaps human.
SHAPE Irregular: trimmed at the sides for reuse and given a notch or cleft extending upward.
CARVED AREAS Front surface only.
