I believe the largest is at Qatna and is about ...

But the mineralogical composition shows a clear differentiation into three groups from north to south; the boundaries between these groups are oriented east-west (Crommelin, p. 144).

Likewise, a study of grazing impacts (e.g. due to satellites in decaying orbits) show two distinct patterns, with recent trajectories being east-west and old ones north-south.

But many years of experience with the decipherment of cuneiform documents that concern the astronomical and astromythological conceptions of the Babylonians have taught me that, in the system of ideas of the Easterners and of the ancient Orientals in particular, there is much that seems nonsensical to us Occidentals, but is in reality within the realm of factual foundations and sound logic.
