The form is unclear. Final s is uncertain. If the reading is correct, -ois could be an o-stem instrumental pl. ending; -is could also be interpreted as an i-stem nominative sg. -oi would be an o-stem nominative pl., but an additional letter, whether sigma or no, seems to be there. Cf. katutiniois, also at Carona. The base could be u̯īt- or u̯id-, but the stem vowel (??) /e/ is problematic.
