Rectangular white marble base, later reused for IGCyr097400 on the opposite side. On top, a circular hole near the right edge and two dovetail holes at left near fore and back edges: they might date either to the first or the second use or even after them. The base was slightly re-cut at right after its second use. The estimated original width of the base can be inferred from the layout and was about 1.01 (present dimensions 0.87; 0.29;0.62).
Inscribed in two lines on front face, symmetrically along vertical axis of the original width; it is exacltly this layout which allows us to estimate the above mentioned original width.
0.035; careful lettering, slanting sigma, narrow epsilon, short vertical right stroke of pi.
