||Small stone mortar in two pieces, glued together; light stone, fairly smooth, especially on the inside; two parallel zigzag lines scratched around outside surface.
Archaeologist Jeremy Moss: Harder material, more finely incised than 2010.1.073. Not hatched but parallel zigzags. Used for pigments or ritual because of the effort made to decorate it. Evidence of pounding or grinding. Looks quartzitic. Pounded into shape.
072 Dr. Lyle Stone: Grinding bowls were for grinding pigments.
