This stone was used as a "packing-stone aboce the main lintels" of the souterrain according to Macalister, CIIC; according to Brash, OIM 234, it rested "across the 4th and 5th lintels". It was not readable for the latter author; but a reading "maqui Deceda maqui" is quoted by J. Rhys, JRSAI 16, 1884, 314, who "could not reach beyond the middle of the last word, `maqui', when visiting the spot in 1884.
