1. AGENTS: Each agent is represented by a description and composite sketch. If proveniences of artifacts are known, then a map is provided. Links allow navigating from one agent to another with similar attributes and to references for the published images of the agent. When describing the image of an agent, the left and right sides are the left and rights sides of the image.
2. ATTRIBUTES: The attributes of each agentís depiction are currently arranged into two design categories: posture and accessories. Due to the fragmentary nature of many artifacts some agent examples are based only on a few attributes. Artifacts must be large enough to provide diagnostic attributes. Future research may split or combine agents.
