Thebes Ohio E-Notch Cast

Price: $25.00
A cast of an authentic Thebes E-notched variety, from Lewis County, KY. It was made in Flint Ridge Chert and measures 3 and 9/16th inches long.   This example shows superb notching skill,  with the end of the notch splitting off into two directions in the classic "E" or dogbone termination.   Research shows these types were used as knives often, and this one shows the classic beveling technique of sharpening on one side.   Thebes of this type date to the Early Archaic, as far back as 9,000 years ago.   They are mostly found in the area around Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.   ex.
