Khipu Notes

1. See note on UR 130, #1, for information on the the CMBE designation.
2. UR132 is not on its original primary cord. The present primary cord is a piece of strong twine onto which the pendant strings have been (re-)inserted. Thus, we cannot be certain the pendant cords belong together or are in their proper order. Presumably, however, Esponey found them together and had some reason for re-stringing them together into a khipu.
3. The length of the primary cord of UR132 has been arbitrarily assigned to preserve the linearity of the khipu for database entry.
