First published in Morandi 2004.

Image in Mollo Mezzena 1982: 212, fig. 9 above (drawing = Mollo Mezzena 1994: 159, fig. 19a).

Three letters inscribed on one of the patera fragments. The reading (according to Morandi, based on the drawing) must be considered uncertain, as all letters appear to be damaged at the bottom. It may be possible that AO·1.1 is part of the same inscription.
