macalister/1945, 134: `The vowels are formed with scores as long as the consonant scores, being differentiated by position only'.
|Date:||550 - 900 (Ziegler/1994)|
|Palaeography:||Macalister/1945, 134: `Succesive groups of identical scores are insufficiently discriminated -- three times there are groups of seven successive vowel-notches, which could be resolved in many ways: oi, ue, eu, io, aai , aoe , etc., etc; and two G's are run together, unintentionally producing a Z. These peculiarities, and the grammatical forms (notably MACI), marks this as a very late example of the use of ogham script'. |
McManus/1991, 80: `scholastic long scores for vowels'.
McManus/1991, 167: `The representation of vowels as full-length scores drawn at a right angle to the stemline is very uncommon on stone'.
Macalister/1945, 134--135: `The angles are rounded, and there is no definite stem-line indicated...A fracture has destroyed I45 in the word MACI. Brash has not noticed this, and has taken in what is left of the I, combining with the following S, to make his reading MACUI EDDOINI'.
