1990s Campagnolo or Knock Off Crankset?

Hoping for help to ID this right crank with Campy chain rings so I can acquire matching left side. It’s unmarked and unbranded other than a raised "264" on inside. Thanks.

I’m not at home now but I’m pretty sure I have a Campy set with similar numbering on the inside of the arm. Athena?

Since some of those "newer" Campy cranks were printed with the logo vs. engraved/pantographed, the marking will be deleted if a person polished the crank.

I think it's a Veloce crankset from the 9s era. The Veloce/Mirage/Centaur/Daytona/Athena cranks from the 9/10 era are pretty similar. The last 3 are the same tier, just with different names. I can't remember if Xenon had an ugly finish for the crank.

I agree, since the chainrings look like the lower-tier stamped parts.

My Marin Vicenza came with Veloce, and my left arm split at the taper. So there just might be a dearth of lone left-side arms out there for these.
However, entire Veloce cranksets sell for little money it seems.
And even a better Chorus crankset might as likely show up for less than what any retail outlet would sell the left arm for.
Note though that as of the 9s or 10s(?) era, the Chorus crankset would have used a much shorter 102mm bottom bracket (Veloce should be 111mm).
