Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. AS190-AS197 were purchased by the Museum in 1969 from Louis Slavitz. Their provenance is near Callengo, Ica Valley. They are compared following AS191.
  2. By color, the khipu is separated in 2, 2, and 5 pendants: the first 2 are W with KB subsidiaries; the next 2 are KB:W; and the last 5 are W.
  3. If the value of the 4th pendant is assumed to be 342, then:

    P1+P2 = P3+P4+P5+P6+P7+P8.
