Fragmentary bronze.
Halfplastic worked, the front side with a D-cross-section. Patina, from dark green to black, smooth, slightly corroded. Broken at on end. In the right area another fracture, however now restored.
The above-mentioned dimensions result of the autopsy by the Thesaurus Inscriptionum Raeticarum. Marchesini indicates: "Lungh 9,8 cm; alt 1,2 cm; spess 0,6 cm" (cp. MLR: 140); the indications given by Marinetti are: "Lungh. cm 10, alt. cm 1,5/2", Marinetti 2003: 112).
On the front side an inscription of which the final part indicates the verb þinaχe; on the back side the symbol symbol5 s.
In the recently released study about the Raetic inscriptions by Marchesini the bronze bronze is listed with "MLR 122", an autopsy was effected (cp. MLR: 140 [MLR 122]).
Autopsied by the Thesaurus Inscriptionum Raeticarum in November 2015.
