Length of the remains 2.3 cm. Inscribed on top of the rim (bent outward), with Χ s upright when looked at from the outside. Of the character to its right, only an angle U3 s is left. While it cannot be excluded that the inscription is incomplete, cp. the group of scratchings on Sanzeno bowls discussed sub la, esp. SZ-60.2.
