Macalister/1945, 132: `inscription pocked in bold scores, but rendered unintelligible by someone who has chamfered most of it away'.
Macalister/1945, 132--133: `The C, which has lost its distal ends, is the first letter of which any trace remains. After the T there is room for one (or at most two) notches, and then follow the distal ends of N, the proximal ends being spalled away. The rest of the letters on the dexter angle and the top have been lost with a large flake broken off from the B-surface. Before the Q there is a fracture which might be A, but this is improbable, as it is too insignificant in comparison with the bold notches of the O following - the only vowel of the inscription which survives. In any case we may not think of MAQ, for there is enough unbroken surface remaining in the appropriate place to preserve some part of the M score if it had ever been there. If there was a relation-word in the inscription it must have been AVI; but no attempt at restoration can be put forward with any assurance. Below the (now final) G the whole of the B-surface has been broken away, with all the remaining letters (including the B-half of G2)'.
