Description

This object is a lithic and is 3 ¾ inches long. Both the ANSP and loan numbers are visible on the base. There are no discernable faces because it is rounded and smoothed. There is a series of long, raking gouges going down the length of the lithic. The lithic narrows to a small knob on one end. It is gray with red stains.
