Not previously published. Examined by TIR in July 2014.

Image in Mandl 2011: Abb. 142 (photo).

Length about 70 cm, running vertically downwards, slightly curving, ending at about 70 cm above the ground. One of only two legible inscriptions on the rock wall facing towards the left. Frame lines both top and bottom; both appear to end with final E d.

Visible traces starting from about 26 cm above N d. A possible, but very tentative reading of the characters in the first, more heavily eroded area is E dI sN dI s. Only N dU5 dA14 dL dE d is well legible, the letters becoming more distinct towards the end.

We can identify the Raetic suffix group -nu-ale as documented multiple times on this rock wall and also at Steinberg. Cf. especially AK-1.21, similar in size and orientation.
