|Orientation:||vertical up along down|
|Position:||n/a ; arris ; n/a ; undecorated|
Macalister/1945, 86: `Inscription chiselled'.
|Ling. Notes:||Macalister/1945, 86: `absolutely unique in giving us the Old Irish genitive for MAIC in Ogham writing'.|
McManus/1991, 66, states `I cannot confirm MAIC which Macalister read'.
|Palaeography:||Gippert/Web, Ogham 83: `In the first name, there is hardly space enough for Macalister's I. An -U- seems well conceivable instead. MAC MAIC is quite doubtful, BROCC even more so'. |
Macalister/1945, 86: `irregular scores'.
Macalister/1945, 86: `inscription ... a little chipped, but otherwise in fair condition'.
