First published in Mayr 1951: 30 (no. VI). Autopsied by TIR in October 2014.

Images in Roberti 1950: Tav. II,VI (drawing) = Mayr 1951: 31 (VI), Pellegrini 1951: no. 6 (photo) and 307 (6) (drawing), LIR (photo and drawing = IR).

Inscribed on the front of the bronze, length about 5.2 cm. The characters are well discernible. Θ sI sΧ3 sI sΘ s on the perforated end is followed by an asterisk symbol2 s between two short strokes on each side; then some criss-crossing lines (see drawing). Most probably non-script, maybe pseudo-script – see here for possible interpretations of inscriptions with doubtful status.
