|Palaeography:||Macalister/1949, 179--180: `The lettering is the most cursive-looking script I have ever seen in any lapidary inscription -- almost like shorthand...The character read as TI is a monogram in the shape of a cross -- a T with an I forming its stem and running through the top cross bar. The two monograms of FI-LI are easily recognisable'.|
Okasha/1993, 182: `The text appears to have used a predominantly insular script'.
Stone not seen by anyone else, but Okasha/1993, 182, states that from the drawing other readings are possible, but that this might be a personal name.
