Image in Mandl 2011: Abb. 134 (photo = Schumacher 2016: Abb. 4).

Length about 28 cm, running vertically towards the top at about 60 cm from the bottom slightly to the right of the centre of the rock wall. Framed by a cartouche. The right- and left-hand side lines seem to disappear into a cavity at about 18 cm below the first visible character, but this extension may be due to the original lines channeling water running down the rock face. No traces of characters are visible before the sequence described below.

Only two letters are legible. The inscription appears to start with a character of which only the lower part of a hasta plus bar slanting downwards line v 01 sline d 02 s is left, the top is damaged by erosion and calc-sinter – possibly K3 d? U5 d is deeply scratched and unambiguous. After it, the remains of another character very similar to the first one, the angle being slightly larger. Then a heavily eroded area, where only vague traces of one, maybe two characters may be guessed at. Well preserved E d is followed by either a frame line or the hasta of another character, with the faint trace of a bar, possibly unintentional, slanting downwards.
