Nu in Raetic has the form usual in the alphabets of Italy; there are no graphic variants. The attestation of inverted Nu, registered only thrice, is not quite certain – it seems fairly clear in VN-13, but in MA-17 certainly, in FI-1 probably it is due to the object being turned during the application of the inscription, meaning that Nu was inscribed upright. See also BZ-2.
