The remains of two characters, slightly scratched, possibly part of a longer sequence. Assuming that the orientation of this inscription is in accordance with that of VN-14.1, we should be faced with the upper parts of the last two letters. The right one might then be Þ3 s or Φ2 s, but note that Phi occurs in VN-14.1 in a rounded and very slender shape. Non-script (one of the more elaborate asterisk-based symbols?) cannot be excluded.
