Comment on the phasing of the object
Phasing Comment:
This artefact is from Gogjeli and the only contextual information is that it was associated with Halaf pottery. This makes contextualisation difficult as the morphology, though not the design, is also very unusual. Have assigned to ArpMid but the certainty of this designation is limited.
