CatRemarks:
Specimen was discovered within a plaster jacket belonging to M.77.05.07. This gladius was contained in the plaster jacket with two tylosaur jaws and one vertebra which belong to M.77.05.07. It is possible that M.77.05.07 choked to death on Q.77.03.07 by the position of the gladius between the two tylosaur jaw elements in the plaster jacket.
