Location and history:

For the locality and discovery, cf. {206}.

Size according to Macalister, CIIC: 2'6" x 0'5 1/2" x 0'4".

This fragment was not dealt with by Brash in OIM and Ferguson in OI. It must be one of the "undecipherable" inscriptions at Kilcoolaght mentioned in Harbison's Guide (115).

When visiting the site in 1978 and 1981, the stone could not be identified with certainty. Most probably it is the one visible on the photographs showing no. {210} where a scratch has been marked (in blue) that might be the one interpreted as "the B-half of an M by Macalister. Note that the two stones were arranged overlapping each other, indicating that they are pieces of one pillar.

Published illustrations:
Macalister, Epig. 2, 105 (draft of both sides).

Reading Macalister, Epig. 2, 105 (101., VII.):

No explicit reading is possible. There are character marks on two opposite angles: the "lower part" of an M on the one angle, an L on the other, "followed by deep tool-marks".

Reading Macalister, CIIC:

No explicit reading is possible. There are character marks on two angles, one showing an L, the other one "the B-half of an M."

The inscription is not treated by Korolev, DP (85).

No new reading is attempted.
