Images in Lunz & Morandi 2003: Fig. 3 (photo) and 4 (drawing).

Length of the remains 5.5 cm. The lines are thin, but well visible; the reading is unambiguous. On the right, the remains of two vertical lines, the left of which can hardly be anything else than I s. The separator consists in three short vertical scratches, and does not come up to the height of the letters. The hasta of E s is inclined in writing direction; the second bar of N s runs along the breaking edge. We can amend to terisna. Cp. BZ-4, where this word is also preceded by a sequence ending in i. Cp. also BZ-27.
