SUPPORT INFORMATION

Support typeRock inscription
Notes on support and decorationsWhile it is clear that a portion of the rock has broken away since U 001 and U 002 were carved, the fact that nothing is missing at the beginning of lines 1–4 of U 001 shows that this part of the rock had its present shape at the time the texts were carved.
