On the extreme left, following the shoulder of the left hero: a row of imitation letters. Behind the right hero: two blots, unclear whether intended for letters. - Under the foot, Grr.: ligature pi-delta (or pi rho?) and internal ligature epsilon-rho. CVA also mentions a Dip., which is not listed in Johnston (1979). See also Johnston's comments in CVA.
