|Palaeography:||Macalister/1949, 74: `rather square lettering...the bracketed letter, which is broken away, was probably R, as this is most likely to have misled the lapidary into omitting the following N -- the latter has had to be inserted as a small character later'.|
CISP: The lettering is a mixture of half-uncial and capitalis. The L and Es are best seen as capitalis, while the final N and the R are half-uncial. The Cs are square.
