First published in IR. Autopsied by TIR in November 2013.

Pictures in Nothdurfter 1979: 100 (1076) (drawing), IR (drawing = LIR) and LIR (photo).

Inscription length 4.5 cm. SZ-46.1 is damaged by corrosion, but the last Θ s and I s are fairly well distinguishable, though the white inlay is misleading. The inscription features additional little crosses similar to SZ-44.1.
