Length 24 cm. The sequence piu was only detected in 2014; a space of about one letter's breadth separates the two. The reading, apart from the last two letters, is doubtful; most letters are damaged and/or disturbed. Possible alternative readings of the second sequence include O2 sN sL sA sR sA s aralno, (unlikely) O2 sN sT3 sA sR sP s/A s pratno/aratno, O2 sN sI sA sR sP s/A s praino/araino, of which praino is the most plausible form linguistically.
