Macalister/1949 73--75 concise discussion
|Orientation:||vertical up along down|
|Position:||n/a ; arris ; n/a ; undivided|
McManus/1991, 73: `It reads up the left-hand arris across the top and down the right in boustrophedon fashion and continues on the left-hand-side rear arris'.
McManus/1991, 73: `The scores are very deeply cut'.
|Palaeography:||McManus/1991, 73: `A very light mark on the B side before the first V is unlikely to be part of the inscription and there is only one L in LOGIDDEAS (the reading in Pilsworth[/1972, 70] is LLOGIDDEAS). The scores of the U at the top of the first angle are somewhat longer than those of the vowels lower down and they look a little like H-series characters but the following C confirms that they are not. ... If MUCI is an arror for MUCOI, not MAQI/MACI, and this is suggested both by the U and the C'.|
