Length 51 cm. The first sigma appears to feature five bars; the same may be true of the second one, which is damaged in the lower area. No separator can be made out between isti and neisu. No iota can fit between sigma and St. Andrew's cross to make isiti; the publishers suggest a "contraction" or writing mistake. The inscription is overwritten by BG·41.20 and BG·41.21.
