The characters are tidily embossed, the long hastae with up to three strokes, using the entire breadth of the plaque. The object is broken on the right side along the hasta of lambda. The uppermost bar of epsilon is still well discernible in a patch of slight corrosion. After , three vertical strokes of increasing inclination are damaged in the upper area: alpha or is unlikely, as the strokes would intersect at about twice the usual letter height; might be conjectured. Of the second only the right half remains, but the continuation of the strokes on the heavily corroded left side can be guessed at. The last discernible trace in the corroded area is that of iota .
A meaningful reading cannot be effected without conjecture. A sequence θiuθis occurs on BZ-4. The first two letters might represent the ending of a name in the pertinentive, in which case the inscription (and also the object) would have had to be of considerable length. Attention may be drawn to the small which also occurs on IT-8 and IT-9 (see Script).
