|Ling. Notes:||Okasha/Forsyth/2001, 242: `The text reads [--]a r[--] but is too fragmentary to be interpreted.|
|Palaeography:||Okasha/Forsyth/2001, 242: `The text is in capitals'.|
CISP: The cross-bar of the capital A is formed by an X, and the letter also has a flat-top. The R is similar in form to that often found in half-uncial inscriptions, but with the addition of a small stroke to the left from the top of the ascender and the angular, rather than curved aspect of the 'foot' it is fair to see this letter as capitalis rather than half-uncial.
Okasha/Forsyth/2001, 242: `The text is ... rather deteriorated'.
