Macalister/1949, 79: `The inscription appears to have been tampered with; the letters are unnaturally sharp'.
|Palaeography:||CISP: The inscription is in half-uncial. The initial O tapers downward to a point and the minuscule R has a contraction mark over it; the D has an ascender which bends to the left over an open bow; the first M has a flat top stroke which extends slightly to the left; the A's are in the `OC' form; the first E is rounded and majuscule with a slightly elongated middle stroke; the L is curved; the first upright of the second M appears to have a short leftward hook at its top; the second R is again minuscule, but this time more angular, and the final E is minuscule and closed.|
Macalister/1949, 79: `The inscription appears to have been tampered with; the letters are unnaturally sharp, as though knife-cut, and the D in the first line, and the I in the second, have been prolonged upwards'.
