|Description:||Set of four spherical beads, graduated in size and pierced; now all chalky white in color, and very friable.|
a) (H 681) pierced with a large hole, emerged as dull pale green in color with three horizontal bands of white.
b) (H 687) similar to a), but with a smaller piercing, was originally pale green with inset white bands. The bore narrows perceptibly, suggested that it was drilled from one end only. Very light for its size.
c) (H 688) a little smaller than a) and b), and rather more ovoid in outline. Bore off center. Inset bands.
d) (H 689) still smaller, and in very flaky condition; no bands but bears traces of some light metallic flaky substance. Possibly traces of gold leaf (?)
Cf. J 123.
|Context:||Mycenaean chamber tomb at north side of Temple of Ares.|
