Description Item is a small, conical spindle whorl. A concave area surrounds the hole in the base. The rest of the base slopes up to the point of maximum diameter whereit meets the sides of the whorl at a definite edge. On this sloping part of the base there is preserved a design repeated three times (probably four or five, originally). The stamped design consists of three concentric fringed arcs, arranged with the top of the most curved one just reaching the edge of the concave area. The last one with barely a curve, is near the edg of the base. In the triangular areas left between the largest arcs, there are single dots.
