Applied upside-down with irregular letters close to the foot. Nu could also be classified as Latinised . Sigma is executed as an irregular flat zig-zag of five lines; see S and cf. a similar form in VA·7 from the same grave. From the same grave also VA·9.
The sequence can be interpreted as a feminine personal name; a Celtic analysis is possible, but no exact comparanda are available (see the word page).
