Inscription length 6.6 cm. While ana seems clear, the leftmost group of scratches is problematic. It can simply be read , with a short hasta like in the second , making those letters converging with Latin . However, there is a scratch slanting away from the top of the rightmost hasta, while a horizontal scratch turns the first angle into another . Mancini suggests an alternative reading apana. Concerning the Latinoid character of the inscription (including "closed" with hardly inclined bar), note that the object is not quite typical in Raetic context and may be an import and/or indicate a recent date for the inscription.
