Inscription length 2 cm. Due to the misinformation in PID (see SZ-28 bowl), Mancini, who found the object bearing this inscription at the Ferdinandeum, was unsure about its identification with PID 207 b, and assigned the sigla SA-50 a to the inscription published in PID, SA-50 b to the one seen by him.
