Commentary

This is one of the inscriptions listed by McManus (1991, 93-4) to be among the earliest in the corpus showing no trace of vowel affection. It may be dated to the first half, or the early second half, of the fifth century (McManus1991, 97)

MARIANI is an example of a genitive form of a Latin name, Marianus, also found on CIIC 16 Rathglass, Co. Carlow (McManus 1991, 113).
