How about this one?

On the very first day of excavation on the north side of the sun pyramid, one of the workers hit on stone when removing the soil+clay layers. I asked him to stop and revealed this piece of stone under 1,5m of UNTOUCHED clay on top of the breccia blocks.
This piece of dark stone, fitting very well into a man's fist, has a strange shape:
1. TOP = knob-like, round, with chiselmarks, not polished
2. BOTTOM = square cut, polished perfecty, with sharp edges

looks like some kind of tool, more like a key or door handle.
Semir called it a decoration piece of the pyramid!

Just another piece of Sandstone?

Here is one more foto of "just another piece of sandstone" or a tool as some people see it. I picked it up from the stone heap (piled up when digging) on the base of the moon pyramid.
It fits smoothely into one hand and could be used as tool, like hammer or grinding device. There is a scar,like an edging on one side of the stone - the stone is not broken - which could result from a rope being tied in order to hold a handle.
It could as well be just a nice looking piece of sandstone, washed by the sea or river to get this peculiar shape.text+foto G.Lukacs

Just Sandstone Or Engraving?

On 24 June , I picked up a broken piece of sand stone, at the sun pyramid plateau next to the info hut. Not knowing whether there is an engraving or not I post it here for further discussion.
The stone looks like a tile = rectangular shape, 9x11cm, sandstone, one side carved, backside plain.
To me it appears as
1)a bear-like animal playing with a thorned ball.
2)Or the image of Europe, with the Hispanic peninsular, Italy and the Balkan.

More puzzling is the ball with thornes below the pawn of the (maybe) bear, which could be the sun (if it is a map). Actually a boat with the sun on it which travels the adriatic sea. The boat takes the sun from east, where it rises to the west, where it sets, according to mythology (the sunbark which is well known on ancient images).

I had 2 replies (1 affirmativ, 1 negativ)
1 question was: did you get it analized. No I did not go to any laboratory or institute,because of time+cost consuming. First wanted to know if someone else can see an image. Anybody interested can get that stone and do whatever analysis.
