    In comments on your November 28 post, you answered my question about “G”, “H”, and “O” pictograms or ideograms at GT. Besides the bucranium, have any other pictograms been found?

      Jens — I mean “C”, “H”, and “O”.

      The complex PPN iconography is still topic of further analyses and discussion. However, an overview on the current state of this discussion may be gained in e.g.:
