Length of inscription 6 cm. Omicron is scratched untidily, with a prolonged scratch at the bottom, but the inscription is well preserved; the reading is unambiguous.
Omicron appears to be intended full-height, probably due to influence from Latin writing (Marchesini & Stifter 2018: 145).
The name is either an abbreviation of VR·24 eskikorikos or a different name without the latter's last component stem. Cf. also VR·27 es for possibly a further shortened attestation. If these three inscriptions do indeed attest the same name, the interments are likely to belong to one family (Marchesini & Stifter 2018: 147).
