While looking for an anchor symbol, I was wondering if this was what you meant ( /I LHS) but decided you probably didn't.
However, that little symbol -which I haven't ever noticed before-takes us deep into conspiracy land.
I was looking through the Barddas earlier on, and got quite caught up in it. It was written by Iolo Morganwg, who was the writer at the centre of
Alan's Wilson's claim. Iolo Morganwg is claimed by most of academia to have been a hoaxer who made up the Barddas in 1862, whilst taking bits and
pieces from earlier sources. Wilson disputes this, and says Morganwg has been deliberately smeared and discredited.
Full text of the Barddas
Morganwg discusses this very symbol:
Why is it not right that a man should commit the Name of God to vocalization, and the sound of language and tongue?
Because it cannot be done without misnaming God, for [p.20 p.21] no man ever heard the vocalization of His Name, and no one knows how to pronounce
it; but it is represented by letters, that it may be known what is meant, and for Whom it stands. Formerly signs were employed, namely, the three
elements of vocal letters. However, to prevent disrespect and dishonour to God, a Bard is forbidden to name Him, except inwardly and in thought.
Pray, my beloved and discreet teacher, show me the signs that stand for the Name of God, and the manner in which they are made.
Thus are they made;―the first of the signs is a small cutting or line inclining with the sun at eventide, thus, / the second is another cutting,
in the form of a perpendicular, upright post, thus, I and the third is a cutting of the same amount of inclination as the first, but in an opposite
direction, that is, against the sun, thus and the three placed together, thus, . But instead of, and as substitutes for these, are placed the three
letters O I W.
And so /I is the symbol of the unpronouncable God. Either the pict stone is showing what Iolo Morganwg claims the Druids wrote, or it is a
coincidence, or a 19th century forger has inscribed the pict stone in the hope someone, someday will mistakenly identify it as a Druid's mark.
