Commentary: Graffito of three animals, located on the western face of Pier A100. They all have short, linear shanks, with no indication of the hooves. The bodies are elongated rectangles and the tails are short lines pointing upward. The heads are small inverted triangles upon which are long and linear horns. They can be interpreted as stags.
