Comment on the phasing of the object
Phasing Comment:
F -1.6m is an ambiguous area. It appears to be a mixture of Ubaid burials cut into Halaf levels. The references to 1.6 F in the report imply a heavy Halaf presence with only limited intrusive Ubaid elements in that area. As such artefact is assumed to be Halaf and ArpMid.
