**Ascher Databook Notes:**

- AS087, AS089, AS090/N2, AS092, AS093, AS094 are associates in that the Museum designates them all as donated by Gaffron, and gives the provenance as Peru. For a comparison of them, see AS087.
- By spacing, AS092 is separated into 10 groups. The first 8 groups each have 6 pendants with the same color pattern (W, MB, MB:W, W, W, W).
- In all 10 groups, the first pendant has the maximum value.
- Position by position, the pendant values in group 1 are larger than those in group 4, which are larger than those in group 3, which are larger than those in group 2. That is:

\[ P_{1i} > P_{4i} > P_{3i} > P_{2i}\;for\;\;i\;=\;(2,3,4,...,8) \] - In a few cases, the sums of values in the same position in pairs of consecutive groups are equal. Namely:

\[ P_{4i} + P_{5i} = P_{6i} + P_{7i}\;for\;\;i\;=\;(1,4) \]\[ P_{2i} + P_{3i} = P_{6i} + P_{7i}\;for\;\;i\;=\;(4,6) \]
