From the Coflein description, this sounds not unlike other stones in the area, a squat shape:

"A roughly triangular stone, 1.2m high by 1.6m by 1.3m."

Mentioned in "The Ancient Stones of Wales" by Chris Barber and John Godfrey Williams (1989 Blorenge Books) as having the names Hoarstone or Oarstone.
