Upper part of a mica schist stela found in secondary context used as the wall of a mediaeval tomb in the graveyard of the church S. Maurizio (Piana Agostinetti 2004: 172}}, Morandi 2004: 717). The very top part is broken off, but preserved; Solinas 2002: 484, n. 9 estimates the original height at ca. 1.5 m. See the inscription page on the typological/palaeographical dating.
