Reading uncertain and possibly incomplete in the beginning, see the inscription page.

If Celtic, the form must be a genitive in (possibly patronymic). A base rau- (with suffix -en-? cf. raneni), however, finds no comparanda in Gaulish onomastics. Tibiletti Bruno 1978: 152 (also 1975b: 50 and 1981: 174) analyses raueni as an Etruscan feminine personal name in -i in the nominative, comparing Etruscan names in rav- (rave, ravia, etc.) as well as forms in Latin inscriptions and the toponym Ravenna.
