The Latheron Stone, 1903

This rectangular slab bears on one face a double rectangular figure in relief with double-spiral and interlaced patterns; below it, incised, a bird, a fish, and two horsemen; and down the left side of these inscriptions, a line of Ogham characters reading DUNNODNNAT MAQQ NETO.

It was found in 1903 on the inside wall of a barn around 400 metres south of Latheron Post Office. It was donated to the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland in 1905 by Sir Francis Tress Barry.
