First published in Marinetti 1992: 697 f. (no. 7). Autopsied by TIR on 16th November 2015.

Image in Marinetti 1992: Fig. 2 (photo = LIR = MLR).

Length 1.4 cm; well legible. K d and A3 s are unambiguous, U2 d is really a smaller chevron with the right line prolonged – Schumacher considers this prolongation a slip of the tool; t as suggested by Marinetti is improbable. Cp. PU-5. See here for a discussion of possible interpretations of inscriptions with doubtful status.
