Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. Construction Note: The main cord (A) is connected to another cord (B) which is color LB but heavier than the LB pendant cord. Another pendant (12) is suspended from cord B. It is possible that cord B is the main cord and pendants 1-11 are actually all subsidiaries of a single pendant cord.
  2. AS201, AS202, AS203, and AS204 are all designated by the museum as TK. This collection is discussed by D. Menzel in Pottery Style and Society in Ancient Peru, Berkeley and Los Angeles, University of California Press, 1976.
  3. By spacing and color the khipu forms 5 groups of 2, 3, 2, 2, 2 pendants each. In the first group both pendants are color MB, have no subsidiaries, and are value 0. The next 4 groups are YB, LB (with an additional MB in group 2), have value 0 or 1, and with one exception each have a subsidiary. The values on the subsidiaries are 0, 3, or 4. Their colors are YB or LB or MB. It is the MB subsidiaries that contain the non-zero value
