Macalister/1909, 39--40: `This [slab is] obviously of later date than the majority of the series'.
|Palaeography:||CISP: The lettering is Insular half-uncial. The A's are in the 'OC' form. The Rs are majuscule and the U flat-bottomed. The second line has two different forms of N. The first is majuscule, with an cross-bar angling downward between the two ascenders. The second N is minuscule with a curved top-stroke. The H is minuscule with a very short ascender and the G is half-uncial.|
Macalister/1909, 40, indicates that the stone is quite badly damaged, and that some of the lettering is lost.
