Length 3.4 cm – the inscription takes up the entire (inscribable) space on the object. The letters are clearly legible and unambiguous. A small corroded hole situated centrally between A5 s and Θ s might qualify as a punctuation mark, but may as well be coincidental. Syllabic punctuation is not known elsewhere in Sanzeno context. The sequence is obscure. vena can be read as an individual name, if final Θ s is interpreted as a delimiter or other independent character. Cp. NO-7; see Script.
