|Palaeography:||CISP: The inscription is in half-uncial. The lapidary seems to have run out of room and continued writing the second part of the name above the first, with this second element curving down to the right. The R is minuscule; the E is three-pronged with the middle stroke elongated and the A is in the `OC' form.|
Macalister/1909, 10: `the second line must be read first, which adds to the difficulty'.
Macalister/1909, 9: `inscription in two lines, so confused and careless in its cutting that its interpretation is rather an enigma'.
