Pointed grave marker

42/52 for the group 2016 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: P is for Pointed

I've noticed this pointy grave marker for years, but until today I didn't know who was buried there. It turned out to be a moderately famous Welsh poet David Richards, or Dafydd Ionawr to give him his bardic name.

The inscription gives his name as Dafydd Ionawr and the date of his death as 12 May 1827. It gives his age as 77, which is a slight exaggeration if the date of birth on the wikipedia article is correct. If he was born in January 1751, my calculation makes him 76.
