|Discovery:||recognised, 1845 Downing, R.|
|History:||Macalister/1945, 59: `There was here a row of three stones in 1879, the central stone inscribed: reduced to two before 1907, when I first visited the site. The now surviving uninscribed stone was already prostrate and partly buried in the ground, when the inscription on its companion was first noticed by Roger Downing, 1845: it was afterwards seen and copied by [Joseph] Windele. Brash, visiting the stone later, found that only a week previously a man had flaked off most of the inscribed angle with the back of an axe'.|
|Dimensions:||1.95 x 107.5 x 47.5 (converted from Macalister/1945)|
Macalister/1945, 60, states that the stone was still on site in 1940.
|Condition:||incomplete , some|
Macalister/1945, 59, states that the inscribed angle was destroyed, but he mentions no other damage to the stone.
