Porphyry slab in subpiramidal irregular form. On one of the major flanks is incised an inscription which contains single line.
In default of the find context the dating in general is related with the second part of the Iron Age, i.e. 5th-1st centuries BC. Due to the missing find information the function of the slab -possibly a funerary cippus- is as well uncertain.
