Reading Macalister, CIIC:

With Barry, the first letter is preferably to be read as a B, not an M. Originally the inscription might have ended with an -I, which could have been split off together with a following word by a fracture like the one present in the R.

Interpretation Korolev, DP, 68:

The final -I as proposed by Macalister has to be preferred because of the Gaul. PN Biracus (Latinized form), gen. Biraci. Rhys still read an initial MOGAI.

Reading McManus, Guide 65:

leg. -I.

Reading Gippert (1981):

Dexter angle, up:
The patronymic is more than doubtful. Only two vowel notches are conceivable.
