First published in TIR. First print publication in Schumacher 2016: 822–825. Examined by TIR in July 2014.

Image in Mandl 2011: Abb. 135 (photo = Schumacher 2016: Abb. 2).

Length min. 27 cm, running vertically towards the top at about 60 cm from the bottom slightly to the right of the centre of the rock wall, immediately to the right of UG-1.1. It is hard to determine whether it it also framed: the line above the letters may belong to UG-1.1; the line before the first letter may be a natural crack in the rock (see UG-1.1). Traces of a line can be detected beneath the letters A3 d, E d and the two following characters.

The first six letters are fairly well legible despite erosion. I d and S s are smaller than the following letters; it is doubtful whether the hasta of T d extends beyond the bar. E d is followed by a slightly oblique vertical scratch, which seems to be crossed by a bar in the centre, but this bar extends in a curve through E d all the way back to N d and is probably unintentional. The vertical, however, is too short to be a frame line as in UG-1.1. The remains of at least one character follow, but no reading can be offered. See Raetic epigraphy on the typology of Raetic petrographs.
