Notes:
 Graffiti-covered rock. Pecked Musnad inscriptions (I-13, I-14, I-15) on north face. Red and yellow painted animals, humans, designs on north and south faces. Yellow paint over red paint, therefore newer; inscriptions pecked through painted figures, therefore newer. Inscriptions are most certainly Pre-Islamic, but the painted figures are of indeterminate date.

Datable sherds are probably Late Islamic, others are very ambiguous.
