Four small characters scratched "incerto e leggero" on the foot of the beaker, only identified by Casini and Motta and therefore published much later than BG·5.1. Casini and Motta assume an abbreviation of a personal name and compare putative siuilios in MI·7.2. The last character I s is written not beside, but above U s, however; the status of the incision as language-encoding writing must be considered uncertain.
