In contrast with all the other inscriptions on the rim of basins (IGCyr108900 to IGCyr120500), which were cut skillfully in workshops, this one looks rather like a graffito. The mention of the tithe might either have been added when the offering was already placed in the sanctuary or be the result of a later appropriation.
