Length of the remains 4.5 cm. Inscribed on a bone or antler handle, running towards the broader end. The lines are thin and black on the calcined surface, but well visible. The first letter is K s rather than Θ s: The bars are crossing on the right, but a hasta is visible along the breaking edge. For the sequence U2 sΘ s, here separated and written in very broad characters, cp. VN-8. ke may well be the final part of an individual name.
