Object BZ-28 fragment with inscription BZ-28.
Not previously published. Autopsied by TIR in November 2014.
Length of the remains about 3 cm. The inscription is included into the Raetic corpus for the only clearly legible letter , which appears in the same shape as in BZ-27.

To the right of , two scratches cut short in the bottom can be seen. See Non-script notational systems for information on the marks on those fragments of helmets from the find which have not been included.
