Khipu Notes:
Ascher Databook Notes:
1. This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Ica. For a list of them, see UR1100.
2. By spacing, the khipu is separated into 2 parts. The first part is 5 groups of 4 or 5 pendants each and the second part is 4 groups of 2 pendants each.
3. In part 1:
1. Each group has the same 5-color pattern: B:YG, BB:YG, B, BB,YG. Where there are only 4 pendants, it is the 4th position that is non-existent.
2. The values in the first group are the sums, position by position, of the values in the other 4 groups.
$P_{1j} = \sum\limits_{i=2}^{5} P_{ij}\;\;\;for\;j=(1,2,3,4,5)$
3. The values within each group have the same relative magnitudes. Specifically

Pi3 > Pi1 > Pi5 > Pi2 > Pi4         for i=(1,2,3,4,5)

4. From group to group, corresponding positions have the same relative magnitudes. With 1 exception

P1j > P4j > P3j ≥ P5j > P2j         for j=(1,2,3,4,5)

4. In part 2:
1. Each group has the same 2-color pattern: B:YG, BB:YG. These are the first 2 colors of the 5-color pattern of part 1.
2. Every value is less than the values in part 1.
5. The value on pendant 3 (97357) is probably the largest value on any khipu in this Databook.
