An accent marking long quantity is seen on our plate (croceō). Script is an early example of half-uncial, with uncial A and G showing the uncial form; r is half-uncial and square shouldered; the foot of l descends obliquely below the line; the Latin letters N, O, P, and T conform to the Greek norm.
