|Palaeography:||Macalister/1945, 42: `A V was incorrectly cut before the initial D, but effaced. The first two A's of the second name are set in wide spaces, but there were never any more notches associated with them. The I of AVI runs vertically upward on a ridge between two spall-matrices, at right angles to the line of the inscription'.|
Macalister/1945, 42: `A scratch, evidently artificial tampering, runnning upward from 1I5, makes the letter read like EH, but the original vowel-notch is complete; perhaps the same meddler cut a score before the C, which overlaps with the preceding U'.
