Reading Ferguson, PRIA 15, 1871, 62:

DOFETIMAQQICATTINI
"Proposed Verbation":
dofeti maqqi cattini
The stone is assigned "No. XX" in Ferguson's "List of Moulds of
Inscribed Stones from .. Localities in the Barony of Corkaguiney".


Reading Ferguson, OI 34 (48.):

DOFETIMAQQICATTINI
"Dofeti maqqi Cattini"
The inscription "doubtless preserves the name of `Dofet, son of Cattin'."


Reading Brash, OIM 202 ("No. 3."):


DOFETIMAQQICATTINI
DOFETI MAQQI CATTINI
"(Stone of) `DOFET THE SON OF CATTIN.'"
The name Doveti, "without the prefix DO-, will be found in the Mart.Don., 213, in the form of Fethi"; cp. also Feti as a "potter's mark upon red Samian ware. Cel.Rom.Sax., 456. Dofat appears on one of the Clydai group, Wales {431}. Cattin is a familiar form", cp. "Catan, Mart.Don. pp. 37, 335, 71, as Cathan, Ann. 4 Mas., A.D. 1036. The name is also to be seen on one of the Ballinrannig find" {153}. "Gaulish forms, Catonius .. Gruter, 14.3 .. pr. Rhenum. Catino .. Orel. 1964. Catuso .. Momms. 62 .. Genev." - Brash further refers to the inscription at Worthyvale reading CATIN HIC IACIT FILIVS MAGARI; cp. MACCIARI on the last mentioned stone from Ballintaggart {156}. Lastly cp. the tribe of the Catti, "who gave their name to Caithness, North Britain.


Reading Rhys (quoted by Macalister, Epig. 1, 35):

Dovetos might be connected with the Biblical David.


Reading Macalister, Epig. 1, 34 (14. / III.):


DOVETIMAQQICATTINI
This is "the monument `of Dovetos, son of Cattinos'; Dovetos was probably a brother of the owner of Ballinrannig VI {153}." Dovetos is rather connected with DOV- in DOVVINIAS {156} than with the Biblical David as suggested by Rhs, "though it must be submitted that there is no other authority for -eti instead of -itti."


Reading Macalister, CIIC:

DOVETI MAQQI CATTINI
This is "perhaps commemorating a brother of the owner of Ballinrannig VI" {153}).
