Macalister/1945, 293: `Inscription pocked and rubbed on two angles (up-up) - the sinister being the first angle, as is remarkably frequent in this part of the country. The inscribed face is recessed by violent hammering to a depth of about 7 ins. behind its original surface, almost certainly to remove an earlier inscription'.
