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

Pictures in IR (photo tav. XLVII, fig. c and drawing = LIR), MLR (photo).

Length 3 cm. The reading ignores three probably unintentional scratches, because a very similar row of characters can be found in the same place on another Sanzeno bowl. Again, the scratches transcribed as I s are shorter than the two letters. The sixth stroke is inscribed into Θ s, giving the symbol symbol s.

Illegible scratchings in three more places on the bottom of the bowl: pictures in IR (photos tav. XLVII, fig. a, b and drawings = LIR).
