This is one of several khipus acquired by the Museum in 1907 with provenance Pachacamac. For others included in this group, see AS097.
By spacing there are 2 single pendants and then 2 groups of 12 pendants each.
The value of pendant 1 is the sum of the values in Group 1.
With one exception, the colors of the pendants in Group 1 alternate (B, BB, B, BB, etc.) while in Group 2, all pendants are B. The sums of the B colored pendants in Group 1, the BB pendants in Group 1, and the B pendants in Group 2 are 52, 53, 54 respectively.
The following regularities are found in Group 1:
Pi = Pi+1 i=(5,10,11)
Pi = Pi+2 i=(1,10)
Pi = Pi+2 + Pi+3 i=(2,3,5,7,8) but not i=(1,4,6 9)
