    Sir, Read before you bid or if you have any questions then ask before you place your bids. This is how participants at auctions are expected to act if they have questions. There is nothing whatsoever in the description that states that there were documents included in the sale. Also, the sale clearly says are fragments even there are many photos of it. The fragments were sent inside strong plastic sealable box with padding, this plastic box was then put in two cardboard boxes with more protection.... Powder???
  • Excellent, item is just as described!

    DrRuf June 16, 2018

  • It was to be fair, a accurate description, but pictures do not tell the whole truth, the beads are in a very fragile state. This is a piece of history.

    Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. The beads are almost 2000 years old and thus, they will have age and use related wear. It is expected. Note that you can still restring them, and in my opinion, for a 2000 years old tiny items, these are in very good condition. Best regards, Juan.

    Dear Sir, please note that the difference in colour is due to how your computer or telephone screen will neve replicate the same as human eye. This is always in any product you see for sale online. The detail if cuneiform writing will always be seen better when light is reflected from one side, this is how scholars decipher them. Also note that this is an ancient item and has natural wear. I would be grateful if you consider this should you decide to change your feedback. Best regards, Juan Bahamonde.

    Dear Sir, You only bought one item from me . I do not understand why you said you only received one item from me. Maybe you confuse me with another buyer?. Please, I would be grateful if you change your feedback. Thank you.
