Epsilon appears in Raetic inscriptions in its standard form going back to Greek. It is sometimes inverted (notably in the inscriptions of Magrè). Forms with the upper bar not touching the tip of the hasta (E3 s) are also most often found at that site; they tend to be associated with corresponding variants of Digamma. Epsilon with straight bars only occurs in the Castelcies inscription – possibly Latinoid?
