Seo Scriptúrchros Ultach ón 10ú céad. Tá an chloch dhin, an ceann, agus an slóc o thréimhsí éagsúla. Ar a shon sin tá phriomh stoc on 10ú céad. Sa tsean-am bhí an chros ag feidhmiú mar chuille chíche ag teorannú thalamh na mainistreach.

Bhain na manaigh feidhm as na híomhánna thuas mar áis teagaisc. Léiríonn na pictiúiri scéalta ón Sean Tiomna agus ón Tiomna Nua. Is cosúil gur as adhmad a rinneadh An Chros Teacht na nUigingigh.

Tiomna Nua:
Adhradh na Magi, Féasta Bhainis Chana, Bollóga agus Eisc.
