Upper part of a mica schist stela found in secondary context, used in the wall of a tomb in the graveyard of the Romanesque church S. Maurizio (phase 1: 5th–6th c. AD, s. Piana Agostinetti 2004: 172, Morandi 2004: 717, and Bioggio for details). The very top part is broken off, but preserved; Solinas 2002: 484, n. 9 estimates the original height at ca. 1.5 m. See the inscription page on the typological/palaeographical dating.
