|Fig. 1 / The Beam, or main-horn, was very perfect, but without any Brow-antler: the rest time had decayed. Some of the skull was attached to the root, or where in joined to the head of the Animal. / Fig. 2 / The Beam of this Specimen was also very entire, though unfortunately the exact form of the Horn cannot be ascertained from any of them.
