Coe, 1964 Said to have been found with B-545, a painted textile with supernatural, and B-562, a pyroengraved gourd, and a ceramic bottle in a tomb in Callango; acquired by John Wise and then by Michael D. Coe. In a visit to the collection on October 15th 2010, Michael Coe said the ceramic that accompany the lot was a double spout and bridge bottle, probably Paracas, and he think he donated it to the American Museum of Natural History (NY) or the yale peabody Museum (New Haven). Peter Kaulicke (Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru) excavated in 2007 a looted tomb in the site of Coyungo in the Rio Grande Valley, Ica, (site: BriG 3117 in his project''s nomenclature) and found three fragments of textile that, he claims, correspond to PC.B.544 (said to be found in the same context with this gourd). A macroscopic and iconographical analysis supports this hypothesis. The bigger piece corresponds with the missing part on the lower center of the DO textile and the other two of missing parts. The tomb was dated 800-700 BCE by C14. Detailed photos of textile structure, by Joe Mills, and a technical drawing of structure, by Jeff Splitstoser, will be done and send to Patricia Landa (textile specialist in Peru, working with Dr. Kaulicke) to test the hypothesis. Our records indicate that the DO textile came from the site of Callango, in the Ica valley, which has a very close pronunciation as Coyungo, located in the Rio Grande Valley (next valley to the south) so it the hypothesis is correct we will change the information to Coyungo in our records.
