Pictish stones are a form of monumental steles and are mainly found at the eastern part of Scotland and around the Clyde-Forth line. This stone was found in Invereen, Moy, Inverness-shire, Scotland. It is of class I category. The stone was carved with Pictish symbols, typical of the 7th and 8th century CE. There are double-disc, crescent, z- and v- symbols. History is silent on the meaning of these stones. (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK)
