this ‘inscribed stone’ is situated on level ground near to mên-an-tol stone circle SW426349. it could mark the burial site of a prominent romano-celtic chieftain. the inscription reads ‘rialobran cunovali fili’ – or ‘here lies rialvran (royal raven) son of cunoval’….although the words at the base of the stone now lie below ground level. it appears to be in an alignment to a groove in carn galver an important neolithic site a kilometre further north. it is thought that the inscription may have been made on a far older neolithic menhir.
