A water-worn boulder 0.92 m high, 0.29 m wide at the base, and about 220 mm thick. A Latin inscription in four horizontal lines reads: VERACIVS/PBR/HIC/IACIT (VERACIUS/PRIEST/LIES/HERE) and probably dates to the late fifth century or early sixth century. The lettering is exceptionally well preserved.
Found near the farm now called Gors beneath Mynydd Anelog in the 18th century along with the Senacus Stone (CN089). It now resides inside St Hywyn's Church, Aberdaron.
The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of early medieval inscribed stones and ecclesiastical life. Only the stone is scheduled.
