The Ichthus Stone or the Llanbadrig Stone is to be found within the church of Llanbadrig near Cemaes Bay, on the north coast of Anglesey, North Wales.| The stone was hidden beneath the plaster of the church for many years until in 1884 renovations exposed the stone. It carries the early Christian symbols of the fish and the palm tree, the latter signifying Jerusalem. | The inscriptions are probably representative of the 9th to the 11th Century gravestones of which there are several to be found in Anglesey.| Following investigation it is now accepted that it would initially have been used as a standing stone before early christians claimed the stone for themselves. | It is believed to be some 4500 years old.
