Pictures in Nothdurfter 1979: 101 (785) (drawing) and IR (photo tav. XLV, fig. a and drawing = LIR).

Inscription length 3 cm. No white inlay in the third bar of E s. After E s a rivet, then, next to the heavily corroded end, possibly traces of another sign (A s?), but maybe merely traces of the tool used to drive in the rivet. On the broad end on the upper side, a multibranched and lopsided asterisk.
