Site name

A site on the southern end of an isolated hill along the Wadi Taluaut. It is part of a cluster of sites located at the eastern edge of the massif, probably along a caravan route that run near a traditional well (Site IDs 280- 290). A small boulder either fell and rolled down or was moved from an exposed bedrock area; here, a Pastoral style scene was carved in the area between the vertical and top surfaces of the boulder. A complete cow’s profile is visible on the vertical surface, although its head is eroded; a second, likely animal facing the cow is now illegible. The head of a further cow (or possibly two) was carved on the boulder’s upper surface. The bedrock surface under the boulder contains two panels with pecked Tifinagh inscriptions. The Tifinagh inscriptions likely continue underneath the boulder thus forming a uniquely large panel.
