Comment Beads made of various kinds of stones, were formed into pendants of geometric shapes such as simple round, oval, rhomboidal, cylindrical, or pearshape, with a singlehole or with double hol es. Bane beads from lang bones of small mammals are common. Tooth beads are generally deer tooth; there is just one tusk of wild boar. Beads made of freshwater bivalves (Unio) are uncommon; there is only one example. For the moment, it can be said that the practices of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic period continued into Pottery Neolithic. Obsidian and flintstone "drill bits" show that at least some beads were produced in the settlement. Five agate beads, noteworthy for their quality craftsmanship, are probably imports. Apart from the string of 88 stones and shaped beads found in trench 14F near the post holes belonging to the 2nd Phase, all beads are scattered, and their context gives no satisfactory information about their positions. There are only 7 ring and bracelet fragments.
