  • CAVI Comments: Ex Baltimore, D.M. Robinson. Turnbull characterizes the inscriptions as follows: "The `inscriptions' are nonsense, strings of T's and X's used simply to break up the space around the figures and make a pattern that links them visually to the intricate arrangement of palmettes on either side."
