Inscribed on the bottom of the patera, just below the edge between bottom and wall; heavily damaged by abrasions. Solinas and Morandi agree about the reading of letters 2–5, but the first letter is read as pi by Solinas, as Latin by Morandi (also 2003: 132 f., no. 14, Morandi 2007: 299, no. 26). Solinas' pi presumably includes a bar which may be a chimera created by abrasion spots, but is depicted in Tizzoni's drawing; Morandi's takes the very slight bend in the hasta of putative pi into account. The appearance of Latin fits with the dating of the inscription and the other Latinised letters of the inscription: primarily mu and arguably alpha with two bars, which is more similar to Latin than the younger Lepontic form (cf. BG·29, BG·31, BG·36.1 and BG·36.2).
