Cuby Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


This is an inscribed stone and as such probably shouldn’t be on this site unless it is a re-used menhir? The stone is built into the south west corner of the church at Cuby.

‘Cornovia: Ancient Sites of Cornwall & Scilly’ (Cornwall Books - 1985, revised 1997 & 2000) gives the following info……”this inscribed stone, dating from the 6th Century, carries the words ‘Nonnita Ercilivi Ricati Tris Fili Ercilinci’ (Nonnita, Ercilius, Ricatus – the three children of Ercilings)”

‘The Earth Mysteries Guide to Mid Cornwall and The Lizard’ (Meyn Mamvro, 1994) gives no extra info.
