There is a badly corroded and light weight core of hard metal. The bulk of the carbonate, on and under (7) and Nos. (8), (9), (10) - comes from the decay of this tool which was without doubt massive like 565. No. (6) much heavier and less corroded than (7). [ILLUSTRATION] Much like (4) and 564. There is no trace of container and all these implements had probably been thrown naked on the pile of pottery.
