Gasperini gave no interpretation of this item. C. Dobias-Lalou adds the following observations: 1) The fragmentary words might belong to a trade mark, for there might be in b) a form of the verb ὁρμάω. 2) The tall hasta at the beginning of c might be a separator rather than an iota. If so, the name of the island and city of Cos would be a possibility. 3) The first letter of a) is perhaps no iota, but rather part of another letter. Without autopsy it would be hazardous to guess more.
