First published in Marinetti 2003: 114 (no. 7). Autopsied by TIR on 17th November 2015.

Images in Marinetti 2003: fig. 1.7 (drawing) (= Marinetti 2004: fig. 2,7), MLR (photo).

Length 2.3 cm. Faintly engraved, highly dubious. Esp. the second N d is a jumble of short scratches. Both the writing direction and the two Nus shed doubt on the reading (Marchesini). A St. Andrew's cross is inscribed above I dN d; a couple of notches, one particularly deep, are engraved on the front of the bone. Probably non-, maybe pseudo-script.
