See the inscription page on problems with the reading.

If the second-to-last letter is epsilon or alpha, the form may be a personal name in the dative i̯ap?ei̯ 'to/for Iapis' (i-stem) or i̯ap?āi̯ 'to/for Iap?a' (ā-stem). Names in iap- or iab- are not common in Continental Celtic, but see Delamarre 2007: 106 iabus, 107 iappus.
