Fig. 143. The difference in patina on the same rock shows the relative age of engraved figures. On this small stone, figures of a camel and an ibex are recognisable. The camel shows a lighter patina and is of a style typical of Period-V (Byzantine or Ancient Islamic period). The ibex, from Period-III (Chalcolithic), was engraved on the same rock three thousand years earlier. (Site HK 2; photo ISR 84 XXXIV-8; WARA W05997).
