First published in Marinetti 1992: 696 f. (no. 5). Autopsied by TIR on 16th November 2015.

Image in Marinetti 1992: Fig. 1.5 (drawing = LIR = MLR).

Length of the remains 1 cm. V d is well visible. The next character is damaged by the breaking edge; only the upper part of a hasta and a bar line d 10 s are left – maybe K d? See here for a discussion of possible interpretations of inscriptions with doubtful status.
