Description With the exception of half a celt, all figured objects made of chlorite were found in graves as burial gifts. The figures on the stone objects have been engraved or incised, mostly depicting undifined creatures differing from each other only in details, the only exception being the picture of a cleary recognizable wild goat. Evidently, the wild goat must have been of prime importance to the inhabitants, not only as the source of subsistance, but more significantly due to the symbolosim apparently attached to it; small horn-shaped objects are also a significant component of the Körtik Tepe assemblage;
