Abstract

Finely worked shaft tapers from the head end to a point. The head was created by sliding a bead over the point and along the shaft until it could go no further. The bead is round and bears traces of white, which may indicate the presence of lead. The head of the shaft is hollow as can be seen by looking down on the bead from above. The sharp point is clearly inscribed with a spiral groove for at least 1.5 cm.
