|Palaeography:||CISP: The inscription is in half-uncial. The initial OR has a contraction mark over it. The O's taper downwards; the R has a horizontal cross-stroke with a slight upwards flourish at its end; the D's have ascenders which bend leftwards over an open bow; the F has a flat, rather than curved top stroke; the 2nd A is in the `OC' form, and the H has a wedge-shaped finial atop its ascender.|
Lionard/1961, 166, accepts this identification.
