Swastika Newton Stone

The Newton Stone contains two inscriptions. The first is an Ogham script in an indeterminate language possibly containing personal names, but the second has never been identified and became known from the early 19th century as the "unknown script". The Ogham script is engraved down the left-hand side of the stone and runs across part of its face, while across the top third of the stone, roughly central, is the unknown text or unidentified script which contains 6 lines comprising 48 characters in total.

I showed this script to an Armenian friend of mine wich told me this could be related to the Armenian script. This was her anwser; as far as I could decode it from Armenian it was written "Cut and proclaimed"

This is the other side of the stone.
