Roskitil's Cross Slab (Manx Cross 138)Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This fragment shows on both faces the remains of the head of a cross. One face shows a common treatment of the head and one arm, but the pelleted bands terminate in a novel manner by uniting to form a ring to which two smaller rings are attached. Between the head and the remaining limb are two diagonal rings interlaced.
The other face has diagonal rings on the arms. A runic inscription reading from bottom to top occupies the shaft and head of the cross, and continues above the left arm. It translates as, ‘…but Hrosskitil betrayed him in a truce, his own oath-fellow.’
