Two large letters inscribed on the foot of the beaker. Epsilon right in the centre is unambiguous; the character to its right is a handlebar-shaped squiggle which is best identified as sigma (thus also Casini & Motta), whose execution is often wonky in alphabetically Lepontic inscriptions. se may be an abbreviated personal name; see the word page for details.
