Length about 3.5 cm. Despite the unambiguous alpha A s, possibly non- or pseudo-script. The two vertical scratches on both sides of St. Andrew's cross are very close to the latter, suggesting the shape of "butterfly" san addŚ2 s, which is characteristic of the Lepontic alphabet. Cf. the somewhat similar arrangement of lines SR-11 on another round, but much larger stone. See Non-script notational systems for a discussion of possible interpretations of inscriptions with doubtful status.
