Llanfairpwllgwyngyll: Latin inscription on Marquess of Anglesey’s Column
Llanfairpwllgwyngyll: Latin inscription on Marquess of Anglesey’s Column
While English and Welsh inscriptions translate each other on the north and east sides of SH5371 : Llanfairpwllgwyngyll: Marquess of Anglesey’s Column, this Latin inscription on the south side appears to be slightly different and I think this was therefore the original inscription when the column was built in 1816.

It reads:
Invicto et fortissimo Duci
Henrico Gulielmo
Marchioni de Anglesey
Populari so
Ob plurima
Tam in bello Hispanico
Quam in ipso Waterlooensi Prællo
Egregie Gesta
Incolæ hujusce Insulæ
Et vicinæ Arvoniensis Oræ
Grati et triumphantes

Columnam hanc
Erexcerunt
AD1816
