Location and history:

According to Macalister, CIIC, the stone was "probably removed from an ancient graveyard in the neighbourhood to serve as a gatepost" and "found by Mr. E. O'Toole in the filling of a gap in the fence" (in 1938?).

Reading Macalister, CIIC:

This inscription must have consisted of two lines, up-up, originally. Only "the second line, which (exceptionally) was on the dexter side" has been preserved. 2I3,4,5 are broken off.

Interpretation Korolev, DP, 60:

After -CC [note that Korolev writes CC in both words!] one vowel notch is preserved; this has most probably to be restored to -I.

Reading McManus, Guide 65:


Reading Gippert:

"Surface angle":
Only one vowel notch is preserved at the beginning of the fracture. The H-half of both M characters is extremely short, thus suggesting a reading B; MUCOI at least seems certain, though.
