Kermode/1907, 99, suggests some Ogham before the surviving text, but this has not been noted by anyone else. Kermode also stated that the last vowel is `scarcely visible; the upper end of the stone has been broken off at the third stroke of the character for `Q'.'
Kermode/1907, 99, `...we do not meet with the name elsewhere in lapidary inscriptions'.
Ziegler/1994, 159--160, states that the name is an o-stem in the genitive singular and that CUNA- gave Old Irish cú and that -MAGLI gave Old Irish mál.
