Commentary

First published in Morandi 2004: 659, no. 214.

Images in Casini & Motta 2018: 123, fig. 4.11 (photo and drawing).

T s is clear, and the first letter cannot be anything other than P s. The middle letter is read as epsilon by Morandi (also 2007: 291, no. 4), but Casini & Motta 2018: 124, no. 11 (erroneously considered unpublished) prefer alpha, arguing that the putative third bar is an unintentional scratch (not excluding the possibility that it represents a correction).
