Hi there, always nice to see you P!
Is this just a coincidence? (Bottom right)
This comes from Mehergarh, Pakistan and is from between 7000-3000 BC. Notice it's comb-cut pottery - hence the comb/ruler?

After seeing the picture of the so called "ruler", I'm calling unsubstantiated speculative BS.
As was mentioned in a previous post , the tolerencing of the item makes it useless as a measuring device, and it sure looks like a COMB.
And nobody has noticed the real implications of the item lie in what it's made from , ebony.
Ebony is a tropical hardwood, whose nearest source is in tropical rainforests of Southern India.
Given that piece of info and the fact that this city was cultural very from its immediate neighbors , I am going to say that the city was Dravidian.
If Mesopotamia was simply one of many city-based civilizations from 5,000 years ago, we will need to rethink the origins of our urban living.”
If the city wasnt founded by indus/dravidian people, they had trade contacts with them.
