Pierced stone. Ovoid shape and flattened section. Four communicating holes in pairs are crossing the pebble lengthways. Human workmanship seems limited to a groove serving as a passage for fastenings, along one the extremities. Used for weighting.

The stone shows minute sub-circular perforations caused by bioerosion of endolithic boring sponges (family Clionaidae).
