RCAHME/1970, 312: `The letters, which are straggling and disparate, shew a mixture of Roman capitals and Insular forms. There is no trace of the initial D. Two forms of capital E are used in the first name. The last surviving letter in the first line is probably FI ligatured, as the end of the cross bar is beginning to drop; the upright of the F projects above the looped upper bar. The first mark in the second line is the tail of an oblique stroke; it is difficult to explain this except as the end of an uncial A, a form used occasionally in Insular Majuscule MSS., or an Insular R together with the more normal letter. The beginning of an A can also be distinguished at the end of this line, much disguised by the surface abrasion of the stone. Forked serifs occur on a number of letters, but there is no consistent use of them. The words are separated by stops (cf. No. iii [WRHAM/3/1])'.
Macalister/1949, 189: `imperfect: what remains is in good condition'.
RCAHME/1970, 308: `imperfect at each end'.
