|Description ||Maen Madoc Inscribed Stone: (Powys, SN 918 157)
This imposing inscribed stone, almost 2.7 metres in height, stands high on the moors alongside the Roman road, Sarn Helen. The Latin inscription, "DERVACUS FILIUS JUSTI IC JACIT", now difficult to read, translates as "stone of Dervacus, son of Justus. He lies here". Despite its adoption as a Roman memorial stone, it is possible that Maen Madoc had a much more ancient origin and may have been erected in Bronze Age times.
