I have a stone tablet my ex-wife left me with that she told me her father had found inEcuador awhile back. I think it looks pretty interesting but I don't have anymore information on it. Was wondering if I could get some help trying to learn more about it. I'll attach a picture. Thanks.

That is interesting.  It looks like hyroglifics and I found a web site that has something a lot like it on there.

You should take it to your local Museum, I am sure they can find out about it, or lead you in the right direction.



Good find Hilander... :tu:

Do you think there's any value in this thing? I don't really have any use for it so was just kinda trying to figure out what it was worth.

Send a picture of it to some Museums, see what they say. Then, you can check a pawn shop, but personally, I would look for auction places that can get you more money, if it is worth it.

Or, you could do the right thing, and donate it to a Museum :)

I think a museum is the way to go.  It may be very valuable if its pre-Inca.

The Hieroglyphs look very much like they are Inca in origin.  I might be mistaken because it's been a few years since I did research on the Inca, it was for highschool but it seems similar.


Upon a google search there were indeed Inca in Ecuador.

The Inca didn't have any hieroglyphs.  They used knots in rope to convey language, as I recall.

Really, I'm stumped now then, I have no idea who I'm thinking of.  

Now you've got me stuck on it hahahaha.  I will try and find some of my history books relating to the assignment, I've got them stashed in my garage somewhere.

I can't be of any help I'm afraid.  According to my mother, my history books got thrown out when we moved houses.  Sorry

Yes that's called the "khipu" if I'm not mistaken.
