A: Ram in profile to left, leaping, head turned backwards. In the free field on the right, next to the ram’s head, a crescent and an eight-pointed star. Unidentified sign below the animal’s belly - perhaps the astrological symbol for ’house’ or a variation on the α missing from the inscription, which runs around the image, beginning next to the ram’s forelegs: βρασαξ → <Ἀ>βρασάξ.
B: Plain.
