Recumbent gravestone, found in the churchyard at Meigle, Angus. On one side, the panel is occupied by three high-stepping horses, the leader accompanied by a hound. At the rear is a curious human figure with a beast’s head, holding two entwined serpents in hand and mouth. The other side of the stone has four carved panels featuring two entwined animals, a bear-like animal and hound above an unidentified object, a rectangle of twelve bosses and a circle of seven bosses surrounded by two beasts grasping the feet and head of a human figure between them. At the head of upper surface is part of a socket for a small cross-slab or decorated panel. On display at Meigle Museum, Angus.
