Macalister/1945, 38--39: `inscription pocked and much worn...The vowels are all faint, and some of them are flaked away -- including the final I, after which the whole sinister angle is chipped. There is no trace of any writing after the letters specified, and I do not think there ever was any. 2C is very difficult to trace: the N scores are oblique, but they certainly do not form part of an R'.
