Stone Slab with Prayer for Flann, Iona AbbeyYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This is a roughly rectangular slab carved with a ringed cross dating from the 9th Century.
The inscription reads ‘A prayer for the soul of Flann’. It could be commemorating Flann mac Maíle-dúin, an abbot of Iona who died in 891.
A number of early Christian cross-incised stones have been found on Iona. They were probably grave-markers, or possibly boundary-markers, with those decorated on both sides standing upright, and the rest being recumbent.
