Inscribed upside-down on the bottom of the patera near the rim of the foot (length 2.5 cm); the tip of upsilon is damaged by a break. Nu, whose form is difficult to judge due to the absence of a straight baseline in the inscription, could also be classified as Latin ; influence from Latin can certainly be argued with regard to the large angle formed by the bars (cf. VA·20 from the same grave). The sinistroverse writing direction precludes a classification of the inscription's alphabet as Latin (but note that other attestations of uin° (MI·16, NO·12, NO·17.2) are all written in the Latin alphabet).
The sequence can be interpreted as a Celtic masculine personal name in the genitive (thus Morandi; see the word page for details).
