Macalister/1945, 26--27: `The scores are chisel-cut, and are in good condition except for wear and some fractures. The beginning is lost...The letters before the present beginning must have been vowels and B consonants, for the H-surface is intact and shows no marking. The stone reads up to the dexter edge as far as the C: after that it turns on to the top. A fracture at the corner has carried off the OI: only A, I, of the second name remain, but the consonants can be restored by considering the positions and widths of the fractures which have destroyed them'.
