Iron summary


Veyr little iron was excavated in LM/78-81 in T-26 1987. One possible piece of slag was recovered, as well as a heavy, corroded cynlindrical piece with a central irregularly shaped cavity. Traces of greenish discoloration appear on the surface of the latter, suggesting bronze. It is diffult to determine whether the object is ancient or modern and to identify its function, as it was recovered from a context without additional finds. As iron blade was also found.
