The cutter of IG II2 689 employs thin strokes and inscribes his letters rather lightly. Strokes rather frequently overlap or do not meet precisely. The lettering has an evanescent, somewhat sloppy, quality. The peculiarities of individual letters are provided. The stone of IG II2 711 is preserved blank for 0.13 m below line 13. There are only four inscriptions from this workman's hand, with a temporal spread of roughly thirty-five years. The four all reveal a striking regularity.

Keywords:   IG II2 689, cutter, strokes, lettering, individual letters, inscriptions
