B4 ronze slab (H. 0.41 Br. 0.285) with inscr. No. 235. It seems to have been found in the same sanctuary [of Aldobrandini]. From the Castellani ColI. to London, Br. Mus.

The top of the tablet is divided into three sections by two triangular notches. In the central section the naked bust of Sol with an aureole of seven rays around his head, three of which are broken off. The bust emerges from acanthus-leaves. In the r. section a patera, in the l. section a sacrificial knife.
