Commentary

The monument was in the collection of the Belgorod-Dnestrovsky Museum of Regional Studies as late as 1959 when it was inspected there by P.O. Karyshkovsky. In 2006, the monument could no longer be located at that museum; it is probably lost.The measurements and other information about it are provided by Karyshkovsky, and the latter reads the text as AN, which is probably a typo.
