On the second angle, the "last point of the i and the top of the following b-score" were "carried away" by a "fresh-looking fracture". This might be the "last dot of maqi, fowllowed by a name commencing Dubi-."

DUBE[B?] is preceded by the last notch of a vowel. On the other angle, there are five scores to be read either as a Q or as a N.
