Ascher Databook Notes:
- This khipu is in very fragmentary condition. It consists of 3 broken pieces that have been recorded together. The first fragment is one group and a top cord; the second is 4 groups with top cords and 3 top cords from which the groups have been broken off; and the third is a group that has been broken off. The broken group has arbitrarily been associated with one of the broken top cords (pendants 24-28 and T7). No colors can be identified.
- Construction note: Each pendant group is suspended from a cord and this cord is attached to the main cord. Hence, the pendants themselves are not connected to the main cord.
- The khipu is too fragmentary to determine if the top cords carried the sum of the pendant cords. However, none of the discernable values contradict this possibility.
- AS072 and AS073 are associated. They were found in association with 7 pieces of cloth and 1 pottery fragment. All were exposed above ground as a result of prior burial site disruptions. The provenance is Rancho San Juan, Ica Valley, Peru.
- Although AS072 and AS073 are both in poor condition, it is interesting to note that, although associated with the same burial, they have different construction styles.
