Commentary

This is one of the inscriptions listed by McManus (1991, 93-4) to be among the earliest in the corpus showing no trace of vowel affection. It may be dated to the first half, or the early second half, of the fifth century (McManus 1991, 97).

The personal names in this inscription are not to our knowledge attested elsewhere. They may contain the prefixes so-/su- 'good' and do-/du- 'bad' (McManus 1991, 105).
