A carved stag sits with its legs doubled up beneath its body on the back of this cross slab fragment. Spirals adorn the stag’s body. The front face of the sandstone fragment shows part of the top and left arms of the cross. While the top arm is nearly all broken away, triangular interlace work can be seen on the left arm. Between the arms is a cable moulding, and a griffin can be seen in the background to the left of the top arm.

This upper corner of an early Christian upright cross slab is from St Vigeans, a village in Angus.
