Hedin Cross (No. 142)



Kirk Maughold Cross No. 142

Hedin Cross (No. 142)


A badly broken slab from a lintel grave at the north keeill. On each side is a Celtic cross design without a circle. The decoration is not very good, but there are good cut runes. The shaft has a step pattern design with cable moulding borders. This work may suggest Anglican work. On one side below the right arm of the cross is a Viking Ship. The only example on the Isle of Man. The inscription reads: Hedin: seti: krus: thina: after: tutur: sino Lif, meaning Hedin set this cross to the memory of his daughter Hlif. On the other face is a short inscription on the right side reading: Arni: risti: runar: thisir, meaning Arni Carves these runes.
