The cutter of SEG II no. 9 makes letters with thin strokes that often taper at the ends to points. Strokes do not meet one another precisely and long strokes tend to bend or curve, sometimes rather awkwardly. Since its time of the initial publication in 1923, a small piece has been lost from the bottom right edge, so that the final letters of lines 18 to 20 in column II are lost. Two letters are lost in line 18 and five each in lines 19 and 20. The chapter then provides a text of the year entries (lines 14–26) that reproduces as closely as possible the layout as it appears on the stone. This cutter appears to have experienced some uncertainty in IG II2 1284 about the spelling of the noun orgeones, in particular with regard to the vowel that was to precede the omega.
