|Palaeography:||Macalister/1945, 221: `A flake has been spalled from the end, which would just give room for the restoration suggested, here borrowed from a notebook of bishop Graves, now in the R.I.A. Library: the lower tips of R123 remain. The vowels are circular conical depressions, which look like drill holes, and the whole inscription has an appearance of freshness about it, which might easily arouse the suspicion that it had been re-cut by some well meaning person; a needless suspicion, however, for a note of Windele's shows that it must have presented the same appearance as it does now, when he saw it in 1843'.|
