Pottery Disks Used as Gaming Pieces
Shaped disks made from Mexican, French, and British tin-enameled sherds, and from an engraved Caddoan sherd. The game played with these pieces apparently required a disk with a pattern on one side and no pattern on the other side of the disk. The disk on the far left measures 3.70 cm x 3.05 cm.”
