Inscribed upside-down in large letters on the bottom of the patera (length ca. 9.7 cm); the reading is clear. Final kappa and iota are located on a separate fragment, but only the upper tip of the bar of kappa is missing. ilauki can be interpreted as a masculine personal name in the genitive; it is probably Celtic, though its analysis is unclear in detail (see the word page).
