First published in Marinetti 2011b: 202 (no. 5). Autopsied by TIR on 14th October 2015.

Image in Marinetti 2011b: 203 (5) (drawing = MLR).

Inscribed on the narrow bottom of the beaker, the tops of the characters pointing towards the foot. The characters take up the entire breadth of the bottom; length about 2.5 cm. AS-19.1 starts at about 1 cm after this sequence. Both characters are damaged by breaks. The object is broken more or less along the left hasta of Ś3 d, whose bars cross, but both reach the bottom of the line. Another vertical break damages the tips of the bars of V d. The status of Ś3 s as a Raetic letter is dubious; in any case, the sequence is most probably a local workman's mark. Cp. AS-20, AS-21, AS-22 and AS-23. The mark usually appears more than once on the same object, but in this case the rest of the bottom is missing.
