Curator's comments
Pencilled note added to Catalogue: 'Not identified in 1897.4-1 register'. However, catalogue records that all objects numbered Jewellery 1-682 are from Enkomi and were excavated by the BM under the Turner Bequest, unless otherwise stated. Due to the small diameter this object cannot be correlated with any other missing ear-rings or spirals in the register.
