Comment on the phasing of the object
Phasing Comment:
Recorded as 'FN. -3.50m close to tomb.' Difficult to contextualise. F is the Ubaid cemetery but -3.5m is below all except two of the burials(G. 40 and 42) which were cut into Halaf levels. Assuming the artefact was just close to one of the burials and not part of one it shall be assigned to the Halaf levels.
