  1. Jens,
    In comments on your November 28 post, you answered my question about “G”, “H”, and “O” pictograms or ideograms at GT. Besides the bucranium, have any other pictograms been found?


    • The complex PPN iconography is still topic of further analyses and discussion. However, an overview on the current state of this discussion may be gained in e.g.:
