Dupplin Cross

Perth, Perthshire
Pictish Free-Standing Cross

The Dupplin Cross, Perth. It is said to date from the ninth century.

On one panel is a Latin inscription: CUSTANTIN SON OF WUIRGUST (Constantine son of Fergus).

Many of the panels contain interlacing, one has a seated man with a harp (perhaps David), there is also a horseman with a spear, several footsoldiers, and a hunting dog leaping on its prey.

This stone has now been removed to the National Museum of Scotland.
