Inscribed on the narrow bottom of the beaker, the tops of the characters pointing towards the foot. The characters take up the entire breadth of the bottom; length about 3 cm. Both characters are well legible; the bars of are slightly curved. The status of as a Raetic letter is dubious; in any case, the sequence is most probably a local workman's mark. Cp. AS-19.2, AS-20, AS-22 and AS-23, and the other instance on the present object.
