|Discovery:||inc, 1925 Mason, S.|
|History:||Macalister/1945, 48: `this inscription was discovered on the Great Saltee by Mr. Standish Mason of Dublin. It was afterwards removed by some persons, apparently induced by hope of gain inspired by publication in a local newspaper; but the rising of a gale so frightened the speculators that they threw it in the sea -- fortunately not into deep water, for it was subsequently rescued, and brought to the mainland: when I saw it (2 April, 1937) it was in the custody of the Parish Priest of Piercestown'.|
