Lightly scrached and partly abraded. Sigma especially is hardly legible, but Casini and Motta prefer a reading s to a. At least one more faint line is visible before sigma; it is not certain whether the inscription is complete. If the reading is correct, the sequence is likely an abbreviation of a personal name, see the word page and cf. sur in VA·12.
