Comment Three other unique bone objects are worth noting. One of them - only partly preserved - the incised figure of a scorpion can be discerned, although part of the composition is missing. Although not completely preserved, the second find has incised figures on its semi-oval surface as well. Here, a snake with a body of multiple zigzagged lines and a triangular head, shown in a perpendicular position, can be discerned. Similar figures have also been noted, particularly on stone vessels. On the largest bone object two wild goat figures, placed one at the top of the other, have been preserved. It has ochre on it. The wild goats are similar to those on the stone vessels. The function of these finds, which have been recovered as burial gifts in two different graves, is no doubt directly relevant to the contexts from which they were recovered. Here it is worth stressing that, out of hundreds of burials, only two have revealed such objects.
