This recumbent grave-slab is sculpted with a long-shafted coss and interlace. It is similar to grave-slabs at Govan and probably dates to the 10th-12th centuries. The slab would have been laid over a grave and may have been accompanied by a headstone. At Strathclyde in the 10th century, there was a distinctive school of monuments, influenced by both Pictish and Anglian (Northumbrian) styles of design.
