Not previously published. Autopsied by TIR on 14th October 2015.

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 2 cm. The hastae of Ś3 d are almost straight, the upper part of V d including the bar are damaged by a break. The status of Ś3 s 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-21 and AS-23, and the other instances on the present object.
