Grey flint with cortex possible axehead. A thick oval chunk of lentoid section with flakes removed overall by multangular hard hammer strike; those scars on the dorsal side include notably rippled marks, whereas this is less pronounced on the ventral surface. A use as a scraper seems as likely. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC
