Govan 12 (Stirling Maxwell’s numbering; ECMS 13) is one of 31 early medieval recumbent cross-slabs originally recorded at Govan Old in 1899, but is one of few that have angle-knobs. This is currently displayed upright, but these monuments would have originally laid flat in the churchyard, likely marking the grave of a significant early medieval individual. This monument is fragmented, but there are no records for what the lower part would have looked like. There are striking similarities in design to Inchinnan 1.
