T. P. Collection. An unusual type that still shows traces of having been coated in red ochre at one time. Archeological finds of pre-human homonims found in South Africa include chunks of red ochre and ochre covered bone remains. I can imagine this was done to symbolically re-animate the dead with red blood-like color. This example is 33 - 37 mm and 7.9 g. Hartill # 1.2 (except shell rather than bone).
