Not previously published. Autopsied by TIR in November 2014.

Length of the remains 2.6 cm; well legible. The object is one of numerous pot sherds from the Rungger Egg which bear characters (see Non-script notational systems). Only two of these have been included in the corpus (cp. SI-1). While S d is a letter shape untypical for marks and non-script scratchings, the symmetrical group I sΘ sI s is suspicious. It cannot be determined whether we are concerned with script. No secure testimonies of script come from the area of Seis am Schlern / Siusi allo Sciliar.
