NOCATI MAQI MAQI-REṬ  ̣  ̣ ?   ̣  ̣/ MAQI MUCOI UDDAMI

Translation

Commentary

Gippert noted that a 'peculiar coincidence of two of the Whitefield stones, viz. this one and {216}, with the stone at Crickhowel, Brecknockshire {327}, as noted by Brash, is indeed striking: Here we have NOCATI as against DUNOCATI in {327} (and Windele who could not have known about {327} had read DUNOCATI in {217}), and in {216} we have MOSAC which we find in {327} again. Whether Windele was right in reading DU- can no longer be verified, given that the bottom of the stone was fixed in a wooden pedestal'.
