First published in Marinetti 1992: 695 f. (no. 3). Autopsied by Stefan Schumacher in 1992. Currently untraceable.

Image in Marinetti 1992: Fig. 1,3 (drawing = LIR = MLR), Schumacher 2004: Taf. 3,7 (drawing).

Length about 5 cm. Judging by the drawings, the inscription is much damaged by holes or abrasions on the surface. On the end with less damage, A15 sΘ s[ (or ]Θ sΧ3 s) seem fairly clear. The remains of the other characters look suspicious; nothing can be made out of them – possibly non- or pseudo-script.
