Notes

There are incised marks along the entire surface of the stone. They are carved in groups of 7, 8, and 9 lines. Some bannerstones are marked with grooves along the edge, especially common on Reel shaped bannerstones. These markings appear to be archaic in origin and may have been incised when the stone was carved or added later for unknown purposes. The perforation is oval.
