Applied close to the foot; the reading is unproblematic. Sigma is executed as a rather flat zig-zag of four lines of unequal length; see S and cf. a similar form in VA·8 from the same grave. The sequence can be interpreted as a Celtic compound personal name (see the word page). Also from the same grave VA·9.
