Very interesting. I’ve never seen any reference that this stone had the Ogham script on it before. You can’t see it very well in these photos, but on another site someone has a drawing of the Stone, with the Ogham Writing at the top left edge above the Latin. As written on the drawing [with the Latin facing you upright] it reads: I - Q - I - F - A - D – which seems meaningless … Like I said, you can’t really see it in the photos, but if you turn the drawing of the stone upside down [so that the Latin is upside down] and read it, left to right, it says, in Ogham: L - A - T - I - N - I … would be interesting to know of there is any other Ogham script either on the stone or in the area … ~ Brad Hartliep ~
