Cyrene Museum, 543 + 570 + 591.
Three fragments of a white marble oblong block: fragment a, broken off on all sides but on the right (0.155; 0.10;0.085); fragment b, broken off on all sides (0.125; 0.075;0.075); fragment c, broken off at right, on top and at left and chipped off below, but preserving probably the original lower face (0.44; 0.13;0.18). As photographed, fragments b and c seem to have been partly adjacent.
Inscribed on one face in at least three lines (on fragment c the inscribed surface has dimensions 0.27; 0.05;).
Average 0.015, letters well cut and pressed together: alpha with dropped bar, beta with larger lower loop, low delta with protruding right stroke, kappa with long oblique bars, pi with equal hastae, non-slanting sigma, phi with very tall hasta, horseshoe omega.
