Stevenson, who held that incised Pictish animal symbols depended upon early Insular Evangelist symbols, such as those found in the Book of Durrow or the Echternach Gospels. It is unknown whether this word was originally derived from a native name. Unlike their contemporaries in Anglo-Saxon England or the Gaels of Ireland and western Scotland, the Picts left virtually no surviving written records of their own, other than a handful of inscriptions and some late medieval copies of lists of Pictish kings.
