CDLI No. P274701.

"The back of the fragment is smooth and shows marks of a cloth. In addition, it shows traces of two parallel vertical wedges and two converging oblique wedges arranged to form the stylized representation of the neck and snout of an animal as in the contemporary  ANŠE or AZ signs.... Apparently two lumps of previously used clay had been pressed together to make the tablet, and when the tablet broke, it separated into two original pieces." (Whiting 1985, 179–180).
