The fragment had been photographed alongside with IGCyr118900 and IRCyr C.695, about which J.M. Reynolds informs that the photograph was taken in 1930. Furthermore, the photograph shows that the fragment has been slightly chipped off at the left end since the snapshot was taken, so that the fragmentary epsilon at the beginning was no longer detectable when C. Dobias-Lalou studied the fragment in 1979.
