Cross Fragment (no. 123)

Only a fragment which had a double twist and ring design on the shaft of the cross. On the right there is a robed figure with long braided hair. She is holding a four pronged spear or staff in her hand. This figure possibly meant as the wise woman, Hyndla as seen on the Jurby slab. Below the figure is a tethered steed with the gold board won by Sigurd from the dragon Fafnir on its back. There are bits of a broken inscription: aiftir, mui translated as ... to the memory of Mu.
