Monument

'clay-slate ... a flat rhombus in section', 1.08m x 0.30m x 0.18m (converted from Macalister 1945, 217).

Text

'inscribed on one of the obtuse angles', stone worn, chipped and top broken (Macalister 1945, 217).

Transliteration

ANM VINNAGỊTLET[ ... ]

Translation

'name/inscription of ?'

Commentary

  • The E is represented by the first supplementary character (or forfid) with its vocalic value /e/, rather than its consonantal value /k/ or /x/, usually transliterated K. With this vocalic usage, 'late linguistic features tend to be more frequent'. There is also 'a correlation with this usage and that of the ANM formula, which is also symptomatic of late date'(McManus 1991, 79; Swift 1997, 83-90).

Locations
