Fifl. 120.—Llanmadotk. i chiselled, and shows a tendency to assume a triangular form, as is some-times the case with holes bored with a thin drill. Its authenticity wasstrongly vouched for by the late Mr. Denny, but I fear it is a modernfabrication. An implement of the same form, from Geixlauen, East Prussia, is pre-served in the Berlin Museum; and another of greenstone was foundat Hallstatt. A singular variety from the same spot has the edge atone end at right angles to that at the other. A small sketch of a very remarkable curved blade, pointed at one end * Simony, Alt. von Hallstatt, p. 9, Taf. vi. 3. 168 PERFORATED AXES. [chap. VIII. and with an axe-like edge at the other, is given in the Journal of ihfArchieolof/ical Assoriaiion* from a specimen in the collection of Mr.F. C. Lukis. It is of greenstone, 11 inches long and 2| inches across,and was found in Guernsey. By the kindness of the Rev. W. C. Lukis,F.S.A., of Wath, I am enabled to give an engraving of the type inFig. 121.
