Origins Of Pictish Symbolism
The last word on Pictish Symbolism has still not been written. Some of the nineteenth and early twentieth century writers, such as J. Romilly Allen, contented themselves with purely descriptive designations of the symbols, and modern authors have concentrated on the possible meanings conveyed by the symbol stones themselves. Here is an attempt, first published in 1893 and reproduced here in facsimile, indicating a possible Scandinavian origin for the symbols.
