See the inscription page on the questionable reading.

Under the assumption that the sequence is a personal name, and that san represents /d/, Tibiletti Bruno 1978: 149 tentatively suggests a compound with prefix ad-; though this is quite plausible, the only reliably attested Celtic name beginning with ado- is adobogiona (AcS I: 44, Delamarre 2007: 13). No further analysis can be offered.
