Incised upside-down close to the rim of the foot; probably complete (Casini & Motta 2018: 120 f., no. 5 [erroneously identified as Morandi's no. 214]). Possibly a manufacturer's mark, cf. repeated art in the area of Bergamo – at is not otherwise attested in the Bergamo area, but on ceramics with similar datings at Como (CO·78) and (with alpha in the same shape) at Arsago Seprio (VA·14). Possibly an abreviation of a personal name in at-.
