CommentsTHE CARVING CONSISTS OF SINGLE WORDS THAT MIGHT BE CONNECTED. TRANSLATION, "Gypsy, trap for wild doves, Lacotea, Philopina, the one with big teeth." LACOTEA (TODAY SPELLED LAKOTEA) WAS BISCAY'S FARMSTEAD. PHILOPINA IS SOME WOMAN'S NAME, AND SHE MAY HAVE BIG TEETH. WAS SHE ALSO A GYPSY WHO TRAPPED DOVES? IS THIS CARVING ABOUT SOME ONE INDIVIDUAL?
