May 15th, 2019: Puzzle Stone

Why would you beat yourself up with a NY Times Sunday Puzzle or any word games when you can collect €2,000 for solving this one?
That's $2,240 in 'Murican.

Plougastel-Daoulas, near Brest, in Brittany, France, has this stone which appears at low tide. On this stone is a drawing of a sailboat,
the dates 1786 and 1787 which are the years they were building artillery batteries to protect Brest.

There is also a bunch of letters, all of them being from the French alphabet.


Nobody has been able to figure out what it means since the rock was first discovered 4 or 5 years ago.
This coming fall(autumn) the town will vote on the submitted solutions and the money awarded to the winner.

Sleep on it, why don't you sleep on it, and you can give 'em your answer in the morning.
Until the lion has his own historian, the hunter will always be a hero.
