|Palaeography:||Okasha/Forsyth/2001, 312: `The text was in half-uncial script'.|
CISP: The script is uncertain. The capitalis form of E displayed on this stone is found on inscriptions inscribed in half-uncial on the site. It could, however, equally belong to an inscription in capitals. The rounded C is of no use for the determining of the script.
Okasha/Forsyth/2001, 312: `appears in the existing drawing to have been legible'.
