Arysgrifau - Inscriptions Eglwys St Gwynhoedl Llangwnnadl
"Among the most interesting features in the Church are the pair of Latin inscriptions on the pillars in the north arcade: one records the burial here of St Gwynhoedl
S GWYNHOEDL IACET HIC
and the other records the building of the aisle in 1520
HEC EDES EDIFICATA EST IN ANO DNI IHRO
One peculiarity is the employment of the letters IHRO to represent Arabic numerals in the date, a passing fashion of the first half of the 16th century."
(thanks to the Church's information leaflet for this.)
