Image in Mollo Mezzena 1982: 212, fig. 9 above (drawing = Mollo Mezzena 1994: 159, fig. 19a).

Two letters inscribed on one of the patera fragments. Reading according to Morandi, based on the drawing. In the drawing, it looks like no letters come before or after, but it may be possible that AO·1.2 is part of the same inscription. Otherwise, possibly an abbreviation of a personal name; see the word page.
