Comments

This inscription has been described as a label by Regulski and a plaque by Spencer (1980).
Friedman (personal communication 2015) says, "It could be from a vessel, probably cylindrical, made of ivory. It seems most unlikely to be a plaque as the ivory is very thick."
Pätznick 2009 also describes it as a fragment from a vase.
