Inscribed in neat and hardly damaged letters on the shoulder of the olpe (length 7 cm), dextroverse and in Latin script; the letters are traced with white paint. Volonté reads S IIVVONIS, an accurate representation of the characters. Morandi's reading semonis, in which the two verticals after initial sigma are taken as cursive Latin epsilon , is more plausible linguistically, but his suggestion that the two chevrons in the middle, which do not touch, represent inverted mu (cf. only Camunoid BS·3.2) is hard to accept. In any case, seuuonis finds better Celtic comparanda than semonis (see the word page). The form appears to be a Latin genitive of a Latinised seuu̯ō (← Celtic seuu̯ū).
