Commentary

Alternate readings were due to "orthographical/etymological" concerns, and not to graphematic reasons. (Markey & Mees 2003: pp. 128-130, fn. 5, cp. Eska 1998c: p. 67, Schmidt 1986: p. 202, Tibiletti Bruno 1966b, Tibiletti Bruno 1978: pp. 141-142, Tibiletti Bruno 1981: pp. 177-181, Prosdocimi 1967: pp. 200-209, Prosdocimi 1986: pp. 233-234, 240-241)

Graphems of Prestino compared with other inscriptions: Markey & Mees 2003: pp. 130-137, cp. Lejeune 1974: p. 343, Prosdocimi 1967: pp. 201-205.

Syntax: Markey & Mees 2003: 137-145, Prosdocimi 1967: 205-209, Prosdocimi 1986: 236-237; Metric: Markey & Mees 2003: 157-160, Eska & Mercado 2005: 177 f.
Tibiletti Bruno 1966b sees a connection between the toponym Airuno/Eiruno and ariuonepos of the inscription (see: Olivieri 1931: p. 71 and Pellegrini 1981: p. 58)
