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

Picture in LIR (drawing).

Heavily corroded, practically not legible. Reading based on Mancini, who saw (ai)ku or (ai)tu in the early 1970ies. He also mentions two oblique, parallel strokes on the inside of the handle, which are more easily discernible, but probably unintentional. If indeed ku, compare SZ-65 simpulum.
