According to Varone the inscription to the left of the crack is HOLCONIVM PRISCVM AED OVF.
On the right is the inscription N. P. R. AED.
Only a small trace of the point is visible between the R and the AED, which instead clearly distinguishes between the remaining letters. In the linked letters of the AED, however, there is no longer any trace of the central oblique stem of the E.
He expands this to N(umerium) P(opidium) R(ufum) a(e)d(ilem).
The candidate Numerius Popidius Rufus was a member of the most notable family that Pompeii had in the Oscan age.
