Ceramic beaker. "Bicchiere carenato a corpo allungato e piede ad anello" (cp. Leonardi & Ruta Serafini 1981: 20).
Different ceramic fragments recomposed and restored with modern pieces.
At two positions characters which can be considered workman's marks (cp. AS-23.1, AS-23.2).
Find year: 2003 or 2004.
Place of finding: Bostel, settlement, probably structure C1. Inventory number: 320442.
The present ceramic vessel was first published by Marinetti but obviously with particular regard to the characters (cp. Marinetti 2011b: 202 [No. 4]). In the recently released study about the Raetic inscriptions by Marchesini the reference Marinetti 2011b: 202 [No. 4] is erroneously assigned to another piece from Bostel (cp. AS-20 potsherd). However Marinetti refers in any case to the present object because she mentioned that "l'iscrizione è graffita nella parete interna" (cp. Marinetti 2011b: 202 [No. 4]) and the characters on one position are inside on the vessel wall. In fact, the present ceramic vessel is not listed in the MLR.
Autopsied by the Thesaurus Inscriptionum Raeticarum in October 2014.
