The monument consists of a stone with an early-medieval inscription on the front. The stone is now 1.7m long, 0.35m down to 0.23m wide and about 0.15m thick, a piece has broken off the top and the left side has been trimmed, probably in the 19th century.
The writing is faint but legible and is confined to what would have been the upper part of the stone when it stood upright. The inscription, in three lines reading vertically down from the top is FILI CVNALPI / CVNACI IACIT / BECCVRI" and translates as (The stone of) Cunalipus son / Cunacus. He lies here / of Beccurus. There is some doubt about the translation and what can be seen on the stone may be the remains of two independent inscriptions
