Flint arrowhead with a deep concave base. Pressure flaked on both faces and a thin bi-convex cross section. Would have been hafted onto the end of a spear shaft, and used as a throwing device to hunt animals on land, or for spearing fish. When purchased in 1949 was kept with 3 other arrowheads within a box labelled "Kostamneh".
