<p>An irregularly broken fragment of a stone slab, in shape resembling a tall parallelogram with the top slanting right. Most of its surface is covered by writing, so its size must be similar to the reported dimensions of the inscribed area. The first three lines on it appear to belong to one inscription (%IN00205), and the lower eight lines to another (%IN00206), but there is no visual separation between the two except a larger vertical space, about double that between lines in both inscriptions. The script and the depth of the engraving also appear to be different in the two inscriptions.</p>
