CHI-RHO STONE

DESCRIPTION + /

Stone inscribed with Chi-Rho, probably late 4th - early 5th century, built into the south porch of Phillack church. It was possibly found during restoration of the church in 1856 although it has been suggested that it is part of a tombstone found at Carsnew. It certainly indicates the presence of Christian community in the Hayle area in the late Roman or early sub-Roman period.
