Length 33.8 cm. The lower parts of most letters are broken off with a large piece of rock, but most are unambiguous – the publishers register doubts about rho, which, when complete, would be considerably larger than the other letters, but no alternative interpretation suggests itself. Only the upper chevron remains of the first letter, but the reading as T s is supported by the repeated occurrence of the word ti in inscriptions on the rock.
