Khipu Notes

**Fieldguide Notes:**

This khipus has 2 interesting field-marks:

- Top cord set 1 equals the sum of cords 9 through 16 which equals 51
- Top cord set 2 equals the number of grouped cords (7 groups of 3 cords each)

**Ascher Databook Notes:**

- All cords have end knots making this a well-preserved specimen.
- Association by color gives one possible grouping while spacing gives another: by color groups of 4,3,7,3,1,2; by spacing groups of 6,3,3,6,3,2.
- Top cord P18 has value of 21 equaling the number of grouped cords (7 groups of 3 cords each) - excluding last two set off by main cord knot.
- The value of top cord P1 plus the value of its subsidiary P1s1 equals 51. The total value of the first 7 pendants is 51 (
*I could not replicate this conclusion - Ashok*) and the total value of the next 7 pendants is 51.*Ashok added:*That is:

P_{1}+ P_{1s1}= 51

\[ \sum\limits_{i=2}^{8} P_{i} = 58\; \]\[ \sum\limits_{i=9}^{16} P_{i} = 51\; \]
