Ivory was abundant in T-26 1987, especially in meters LM/80-81 in the eastern part of the trench. The majority were small flakes and unrecognizable pieces, but a number of distinguishable inlays and discs were recovered. These included a curved inlay with a meander pattern (p., #2) a rectangular inlay with a guilloche (p. , #1), a petal, and a diamond (p. , #9). These latter four bear striking resemblance to the ivories found by MC/MT T-23, 1978-1981. Many were found in the vicinity of bronze nails, beads, or unrecognizable flakes, and carbonized wood, suggesting that they may have originally belonged to a piece of furniture.
