The pierced rectangular tablet contains even more signs divided by four vertical lines. Three signs at the bottom of this tablet are recognizable. The symbol in the fourth column is the clearest and represents the head of an animal, perhaps of a bull. The two symbols atthe bottom of the second and fifth column could represent a cup. In the right-most column, the top symbol seems to pour something into the cup. Some suggest that the bull and cups on this tablet depict some sacrificial ritual.
