First published in Morandi 2004: 606 f., no. 126. Examined for LexLep on 30>sup>th April 2022.

Inscribed neatly, but at an unusual angle on the bottom of the patera about halfway between foot and rim. Morandi interprets ui as an abbreviation and compares VA·19 uini from the same necropolis (cf. also VA·15, VA·17). While this is certainly possible, a Roman numeral '4' or non-script mark cannot be excluded.
