This is one of the few architectural pieces that survive from Meigle. The stone would have made up part of a narrow frieze in the Church. It shows two beasts on either side of a possibly horned figure with fish-tailed legs, holding what is thought to be serpents. Some have interpreted this figure as the Celtic deity Cernunnos. This stone may have been brightly painted in the past. On display with other Pictish stones at Meigle Museum.
