Animal bone segments (early bronze age, c. 2169 - c. 1500 BCE), between 13-15 centimeters in length, sometimes decorated with incisions on which, successively, have been carried out globules in relief. Their uses are not yet known, although some scholars have supposed that these artefacts could be small idols, while others think they could be dagger handles. (Pencil drawing by Gina Pardo).
