Lines 1 and 2 are very much worn out, but might contain the title of the list following on the main side. Conversely, the faint letters of the left side, here presented as textpart d) might well not be related to the rest.

Both the graphic system and the monument type differ from the other lists of military officers. Hence it is not sure that this list belongs to the series, as was thought by editor princeps and all commentators. Dobias-Lalou, 2016 , p. 244-245 has cautiously proposed that it might be a casualty list inspired by Attic fashion both in its layout and in the unique graphic system intermediate between archaic and classical mode.

The lettering is similar to the most ancient accounts of damiergoi, such as IGCyr011900 and IGCyr012000, whence the date proposed here.
