OROIT AR MAEL-DOITHIN
Petrie/1872 28 reading only
|Position:||n/a ; broad ; mixed ; undivided|
|Palaeography:||CISP: The lettering is Insular half-uncial. The A is in the 'OC' form and the minuscule H appears to have a wedge-shaped finial. The letters of the first line are substantially larger than those of the second. The R is majuscule and the two Os are oval-shaped. The T is half-uncial with a curved ascender and a flat top-stroke. The damaged N appears to be minuscule with a rounded top stroke.|
Petrie/1872, 28: `The abbreviation used here for OROIT is singular. As only three and a half of the final letters of the name exist, it is difficult to conjecture what it was, unless it is a name that ends in thin, such as Cairrthin'.
Macalister/1909, 44: `The unusual abbreviation used for OROIT strikes me as a suspicious point about this transcript'.
