Have a vague idea of what it should be. It could be an "Attala Banner stone." I does look similar to others I've seen in pictures of the mound builders. From all accounts there were many of these made before the coming of the bow and arrow. The added weight on the throwing stick gave it an advantage to sending the projectile (spear) further down range.

I agree with Uley. The Atilla Banner Stone photos are very similar to the photo here. Their use as weights on atlatls makes sense especially when understood that their use predates Bow and Arrow. Thanks, Uley. I learned something new in your posts. Until now, I had never heard of Atilla Banner Stones.
