First published in Marinetti 1992: 692 f. (no. 1). Autopsied by Stefan Schumacher in 1992. Currently untraceable.

Image in Marinetti 1992: Fig. 1,1 (drawing = LIR = MLR), Schumacher 2004: Taf. 3,5 (drawing).

Length 1.9 cm. Marinetti's and Schumacher's drawings agree widely, including initial inverted Digamma, for which Marchesini suggests an alternative reading as Lambda (apparently doubting the existence of the upper bar). The final letter is read Θ d by Marinetti, but Schumacher and Marchesini prefer U2 d (cp. PU-11).
