  • How to
    request
'Inscription on the threshold-stone of the South Door of the Parochial Church of Lustleigh near Moreton in the County of Devon.' The inscription runs: 'Dxxtuidoc | conihnoc', and is reproduced in would-be facsimile.

[Note by E.W.B.N.: I take the second and third letters to represent the et ligature (&), and the stone to be a boundary-stone or tombstone of Dettuidoc [son] of Conhinoc. This part of Devon was not conquered by the Saxons till after 925, but the inscription looks to be not later than the 9th cent. and to be possibly of the 8th.]
