Fragment of a cross slab. On the front is an encircled cross with expanded arms and a depression at the centre of the head. On the back is an incised spiral within a circle. This cross was probably carved in the 700s when Whithorn was under Northumbrian control. Despite this the main artistic influences appear to be Irish rather than Anglian. On display in the Whithorn Priory Museum, Whithorn, Dumfries and Galloway.
