Govan 24 (Stirling Maxwell’s numbering; ECMS 6) is one of 31 early medieval recumbent cross-slabs originally recorded at Govan Old in 1899. These monuments would have originally laid flat in the churchyard, likely marking the grave of a significant early medieval individual. The inscription across the top, ‘Belliy houstons’, was added sometime between the 17th-19th centuries when the stone was reused. Tim Clarkson has suggested it was reused by someone in the Rowan family.
