Obverse

Three standing figures; no sigla visible. The central figure is the Virgin holding the Christ Child in her right arm. The figure on the left is unidentified but appears to be wearing a veil and holding a martyr's cross and will thus be a female saint. We propose no identification for the partially preserved figure on the right. Border of dots.

Reverse

Inscription of eight lines. Border of dots.
