TLGS 003

Nothing VIsible
Notes: Tapered slab 1.82cm long and 0.41 m wide at the head very worn. It has a double scroll moulding round the edge. At the top of the stone there is a label for an inscription now no longer visible and underneath, a galley with a furled sail. The rest of the decoration consists of a centrally placed sword with irregular knot work in the spaces above the quillions, and double plant scrolls on either side of the blade. The sword has a lobated pommel and short inclined quillions, so is not a claymore. Iona School 14th -15th century.
