A Galway type chalice with hexagonal base and decorative knop is to be found on the top of the slab. A sacred host with an IHS monogram and small cross with serif terminals. Three nails or arrows are depicted beneath the IHS monogram.   An inscription circles the chalice and reads: LAVDETVR SANCTISSIMVM SACRAMENTVM. This translated to English means: PRAISED HOLY SACRAMENT.
