Attested only once, the only documented case of combined inflectional endings in Raetic so far. For details and Etruscan (morphological) comparanda see De Simone 2013: 68 f. The base is without comparanda; De Simone suggests to identify the Avaśu* as a group of divine beings, the recipients of the votive gift.
