Reading Macalister, CIIC:

MAIC is a very peculiar orthographical variant, as noted before by Barry [where?].

Interpretation Korolev, DP, 67:

The inscription is very late, dating perhaps from the end of 7th or the beginning of 8th century. MAIC has as indication of palatality in its I, but this is not present in BROCC nor MAC. Should this rather be a nominative? Cp. no. {228} with MACI BROCI, proving itself to be older like this. LAMADILICCI remains unclear: no equivalents are known, neither in Ogham nor manuscripts.

Reading Gippert (1981):

Dexter angle - top:
In the first name, there is hardly space enough for Macalister's I. An -U- seems well conceivable instead. MAC MAIC is quite doubtful, BROCC even more so.

For further references cf. no. {82}.
