Scope & Content: This pillar-shaped stone was found at Bemaken Friary (PRN 0011) where it was noted at least as early as 1885 built into the south wall of the friary church, where it had probably been re-used as a lintel. Once recovered it was found to be incomplete, the upper end being broken off. It bears an incomplete ogham inscription running up one edge, which reads, 'Cunamagli maq?', translated as '(the stone) of Cunamaglus, son of?'. It is now displayed in the Manx Museum.
