The stone is shaped as an irregular circle, the surface of the obverse does not constitute a regular arch either. There is a thin suspension hole bored through the gem above the head of Chnoubis.
B: Inscription in two lines, running at right angles in relation to the decoration of the obverse: αζαζαρ|αθβαχυ. Short stroke below χ, perhaps the beginning of the final χ of βαχυχ (Bonner). Voces including: Ἀράθ, βαχυχ.
