Macalister/1945, 227: `in good condition though worn...No traceable vowel between the N's of TIDONNA: final vowel of this word faint and doubtful. H-half of the G worn off, and following I faint. A large cross potent on the inscribed face. Across the sinister arm of the cross a bar has been cut in error, but the mistake was discovered in time and the line was not deepened'.
