See the inscription page on the uncertain reading.

Possibly an abbreviation of a personal name, as suggested by Morandi 2003: 127, no. 4 (also 2004: 713, no. 289). Morandi compares pit twice in the area of Bergamo (but with similar reading problems); cf. also names in biu̯- and bir(r)- as well as pisa, pianu, piami.
