    What does "the millet back" mean? Misspelling or what?

    Context:

    Implements for the Ritual Offering of Black Millet Wine, Herb-Scented:
    Jade tablet and libation cup, one bowl of millet and wine each (the tablet and
    cup matching, the millet back); seasoned wine to sprinkle on the ground to
    attract gods below; tablet and libation cup, ritual instruments of the ancestral
    temple for sacrificing to the former kings.Yesterday 3:34 pmFull Member416Joined 5th October 2007High mind turns the grace of the universe as the glory of your life.

    Looks like a typo; in the first line it's 'black'.

    I agree with Bob. I think the intended idea is to refer back to "the black millet" named in the first line. The instructions need to be edited in general though.
