|Customary name:||san, sade|
Variants and attestation
The variant is the standard form of San in Raetic; , typical for the Lugano corpus (see Lexicon Leponticum: Ś), occurs only once in the epigraphically peculiar PU-1. is never securely attested as a letter, but only as part of a factory mark in Bostel. Its attestation in a language-encoding inscription is highly dubious. Inverted forms are not attested.
San is generally assumed to write a marked sibilant ([ʃ] vel sim.), as it does in the Venetic writing tradition (see Script); hence the transliteration with ś. The inscriptions from San Giorgio di Valpolicella may represent an exception: San occurs three times, Sigma never; San might be argued to write s in VR-14. See also Z for evidence of the influence of Etruscan writing in the area of Verona.
