My problem with them is why bother if they don't have a function. The third panel is missing, so it's incomplete, and why the notations inside the figure. Indications of color or pattern? They are not forgeries, the amount involved was minimal (less than three pizzas for a total of 10 drawings in the scroll). My best guess would be an in between stage in the design phase or maybe a working copy for a printer. Or a study by a student, but then why the notations. A bit of a puzzle. I'll post more images later.
