This Pictish stone combines both Christian and pagan symbols. One side is dominated by a Cross with intricate interlace surrounded by fabulous beasts. Carved on the reverse side is a hunting scene with common Pictish symbols, a double disc, Z-rod, crescent, comb and mirror. At the bottom of one of the narrow faces of the stone is the inscription that gives the stone its name. ‘Drosten / ipeuoret / ettfor / cus’ This may represent the person commemorated, the patron or sculptor.
