I’ve been working on the second record, and I also had difficulty transcribing the name in the inscription, I thought it looked like:-


Are we allowed to put a question mark after the name, if we’re unsure, or if you can’t read an inscription can you say it’s indecipherable in a note?

Many thanks,
