[---] , [---] figlio di Karnedas, [---] figlio di Mnasis, [---] .
Both personal names are obvious. As the one at line 2 is at the genitive and on behalf of the size of letters, we may suppose that we have a list of names with fathers' names, so we choose to treat also the name at line 1 as a genitive. Possibly the list was displayed in two columns like many other ones: this would fill better the presumable width of the block.
