Khipu Notes

**Ascher Databook Notes:**

- This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Ica. For a list of them, see UR1100.
- By spacing, the khipu is separated into 2 groups of 7 pendants each. Both groups have the same color pattern: MB, EB, B, MB: W, B: W, W, W.
- With the exception of the first position, values in both groups are in the same relative order. Specifically:

P_{i7}> P_{i2}> P_{i4}> P_{i3}> P_{i5}> P_{i6}for i=(1, 2) - With the exception of the 6th position, the values of group 2 are greater than those in corresponding positions in group 1.

P_{2j}> P_{1j}for j=(1, 2...,5,7) - The last value in group 1 is the sum of 3 other values in the group:

P_{17}= P_{11}+ P_{13}+ P_{16} - a) Two pairs of values in group 1 have the same sum. In both pairs, the values are 3 positions apart.

P_{11}+ P_{14}= P_{13}+ P_{16}

b) With a discrepancy of 1, the sum is the same for a pair of values in corresponding positions in both groups.

P_{13}+ P_{16}≈ P_{23}+ P_{26}
