In the phrase "it appears to have been a split reed" does "it" refer to sistrum? I think so but don't want to interfere incorrectly. Flamenco dancers use crótalos I believe. Wikipedia does reach for singular singulars sometimes, like Pant; the article title crotalum, instead of the more natural crotala, unavoidably reminds me of the sound of one hand clapping... --Wetman 04:41, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
