Minoan Linear A tablet from Akrotiri (no. 36) undecipherable

Minoan Linear A tablet from Akrotiri (no. 36) undecipherable:

LinearA joins from Akrotiri no. 36

This Minoan Linear A tablet from Akrotiri (no. 36) is so badly damaged it is undecipherable. I would like to believe that the word on the second join [2] is rutemuda, but there is simply no way of telling, as it is left-truncated. It is questionable whether the first syllabogram in [2] is indeed RU, which is why I have appended a question mark to. Still, this is such a justly famous Minoan Linear A tablet, I felt I would have done it an injustice not to post it.
