From the photograph, it is possible to see a difference between both strokes at the beginning; the first one being curved, belonged to an omega, while the second one is sgraight. We thus get the ending of a feminine name in -ώι. There are no distinctive features in this small fragment and nothing is known about its findspot, so it is impossible to know which type of inscription contained this woman's name.
