Length of the remains 36 cm. The letters, being deeply engraved, are well legible despite the heavy erosion of the surface. The upper right corner of the stone has broken off, damaging initial R2 s in the top. Apart from that, stone and inscription appear to be complete. No interpretation can be offered, but note the prevalence of the ending -ke on slabs of stone from the Bozen/Nonsberg area.
