Ballagilley Cross Slab

Period: Early Medieval

NGR Easting: 249210

NGR Northing: 491710

Description: This slab was found in 1899 in a roadside hedge at Ballagilley.

One face bears a number of geometric motifs. Near the top is a cross formed from compass-drawn arcs set in a double circular surround. The concave ends of the limbs are formed by yet more arcs.

Below, in a smaller circle, is a six-limbed figure formed by compass-drawn arcs. The points of the arms are connected by further compass arcs, in effect creating a hexafoil with concave sides. Two lightly scratched crosses have been added between the two rings.
