Govan Cross slab

Two views of the "Cuddy Stane" (cross slab no 5) found at Govan Old Parish Church.

This medieval cross slab took its name from the depiction of what was interpreted as a donkey (a "cuddy") on one side. The slab is broken, and so the figure of the rider is missing - as is the top part of the cross carved on the other side of the stone.

Note the initials carved on the stones, probably when this upright monument was re-used as a grave slab in the 17th century.
