**Fieldguide Notes:**

This khipus has 2 interesting field-marks:

- Each group is in (roughly) sorted descending order.
- Each cord in the left group is (roughly) greater than the right group.

**Ascher Databook Notes:**

- This khipu and AS018 are not, to our knowledge, associated, but are given identical numbers SA4034 by the owner.
- By spacing there are 2 groups of 5 pendants each.
- Both groups have the same color pattern-â€”-B,W,B,B,B:W.
- Represent the value on the pendant in
*group*by**i**at*position***j**\[V_{ij}\;\;where\;i=1,2;\;\;j=1,2,...,5 \]- Comparison between groups: \[V_{1j}>V_{2j}\;for\;j=1,3,4,5\]
- Comparison within groups: \[V_{i1}>V_{i2}\;\;and\;\;V_{i1}>V_{i3}\;>\;V_{i4}>V_{i5}\;for\;i=1,2 \]
