Comment on the phasing of the object
Phasing Comment:

Recorded as: Akropolis (AK) -1m Central Side. Pre-Al-Ubaid level. AK is probably T.T.5 but there are no clear records of where this is meant to be except the report says 'Area. T.T.5. (A.K.)' so is presumable similar.

T.T.5 is a very disturbed level between the abandonment of the Halaf settlement and the Ubaid levels. Mallowan and Rose record it as Pre-Al-Ubaid and typologically it fits so it has been assigned to ArpMid.
