Length 6 cm. Inscribed between two frame lines within a small patch where the surface layer of the rock broke off. The text must therefore be complete; however, another inscription is written above this one, also between frame lines, sharing one with the inscription below. The upper inscription appears to have been effaced; it is considered illegible by the publishers. The effacing marks also damage the lower inscription in some parts; it is not unlikely that the two lines belong together as one text.
