A group of slight scratches right next to the hole drilled into the left end of the bone, max. height 1.9 cm. The most suggestive part is a long line made up of about five short scratches, followed by a zig-zag, suggesting . There is another "bar" extending from the bottom of the longer line in the other direction; to the right, a profusion of tiny scratches defies an interpretable arrangement. Most probably non-script; possibly pseudo-script. See here for a discussion of possible interpretations of inscriptions with doubtful status.
