Comment Among the significant finds, there are ovoid and round stone beads, some with coloured serpentine inlays. These stone beads, shaped from white coloured hard stone, display excellent craftsmanship; all of them have two holes drilled in the centre with inlay in carved sockets on their surface. There is a considerable variety of bead: ones that are ovoid have three inlays, while rectangular ones have four symmetrically-placed inlays. As a group of them have been recovered by the arm of a skeleton, we assume them to be some sort of worn ornament. Such inlaid beads are unique to this site. Besides these there are stone beads with two holes which can certainly be associated with the burials. Also among the burial finds are carefully shaped tooth and bone beads.
