Inscribed Stone From Tennessee Necropolis
The pictured stone was found during the early 1890s in an extensive cemetery near Nashville. The stone's back was hollowed out like a cupstone, while its front was inscribed with symbols. Barry Fell considers the symbols Libyan, pre100 A.D. style. He translates them thus:
"The colonists pledge to redeem."
