Image in Mandl 2011: Abb. 138 (photo).

Length min. 23 cm; the last character at about 110 cm above the ground. Running downwards on a small protrusion on the very left edge of the rock wall, the middle one of a group of three (Bildstelle 1, with AK-1.1 and AK-1.3).

Traces of characters can be seen starting from the darker area of rock above the inscription, but apart from possible U5 s at about 10 cm before N s no reading can be offered. The last five letters, however, are unambiguous, representing the suffix syntagma -nu-ale, as attested repeatedly on this rock wall and at Steinberg. We can therefore assume that the illegible part of the inscription contained at least the personal name base for the patronym.
