Length 3.7 cm. The small inscription is not well legible, but the form ti, which occurs in initial position in other inscriptions on the rock, indicates that it is complete at least in the beginning. The sequence ti isiti also occurs in BG·41.21, followed by another word; see the word pages for further atteststions. See also Casini et al. 2014: 188.
