Lipid stable isotope characteristics from archaeological samples against theoretical mixes. a Plot of Δ13C against δ13C16:0 compared with reference ranges for authentic plant, ruminant adipose and dairy fats (mean ± 1σ). Published isotope data from the East Mound (ca. 6800–6300 cal BC) of Çatalhöyük41 are displayed for comparison. Density distributions of Δ13C values obtained by theoretical mixing of b dairy and c ruminant adipose fats with an increasing amount of C3 plant lipids
