Macalister and Charles Thomas have read it as ALRORON; Elisabeth Okasha reads to as CILRORON. However, Okasha's inscribed stone interpretations are untrustworthy.
Alwar of BM is probably the 11th century Alweard, Aluuard, of the Manor of Alverton, Penzance. I suspect he was a senior churchman at Madron church (mother church of Penzance), appointed by Canterbury.
His name is preserved in place-names such as Alverton and Nansalverne.
