First published in Marinetti 1992: 697 (no. 6). Autopsied by TIR on 16th November 2015.

Image in Marinetti 1992: Fig. 1.6 (drawing = LIR = MLR).

Length of the remains 2.4 cm. The upper parts of all characters are damaged by the breaking edge. On the right, a bar line d 20 s, interpreted as the remains of N s by Marinetti. Then probably another N s; next, an oblique hasta (I s?). E s is comparatively clear, the topmost bar coinciding with the breaking edge. Last, Χ s inclined to the left. See here for a discussion of possible interpretations of inscriptions with doubtful status.
