Transliteration

SEDAN[I MA]Q̣[I CAT]ṬABBOTT AVVI DEṚC̣MASOC

Translation

'of Sétnae son of Cathub Uí Dercmossaig'

Commentary

This is one of the inscriptions listed by McManus (1991, 96) in which syncope (dropping of internal vowels) begins to show itself (loss of vowel indicated by asterisk: DERC*MASOC). Therefore, it may be dated to the late sixth or early seventh century (McManus 1991, 97).

Although this stone is from the Hook Peninsula in Co. Wexford, the kin group name of the person commemorated (AVVI DERCMASOC) is presumably of the Dublin based Uí Dercmossaig sept (McManus 1991, 104, 111, 112).
