XI inscription (Roman Numerals?) and hole on Kestor Rock

Reference: This item was kindly brought to the attention of Dartefacts by Emma Cunis (of Dartmoor’s Daughter). Emma has also supplied the ‘featured image’ that will hopefully help supply an explanation for this inscribed item.

Notes: There is a theory that this item is related to the Ex Trig Point on Kestor Rock and that the hole held the Ordnance Survey theodolite while surveying to other Trig Points took place? We assume that ‘XI’ are Roman Numerals but perhaps there is another explanation?

Does anyone out there have a theory as to what this inscription relates to?

The current grid ref is an approximate 6 figure one. Until a visit with my GPS takes place the exact location has yet to be determined.
