A: Bird(falcon?)-headed figure, wearing kilt, head and feet to right. Left hand raised and holding a tall scepter resembling the was-scepter, right hand holding the sa-sign (Bonner) or wreath (Schwartz - Schwartz). On the left, an eagle with spread wings. The head of the principal figure is not that of a cock, since there is no trace of a comb. It may have been intended for a hawk's head, but the rounded outline is more like that of a chick or some small bird.
B: Inscribed in two lines: [.]αμαχριε|διαντωθ - beginning of the inscription probably lost due to damage. 
C: Inscribed on the edge: ρρεν.
