This stein, dated 1896, celebrates the 60th Stiftungsfest (Foundation Celebration) of the Christliche Studentenverbindung (C.St.V) Uttenruthia Erlangen. Founded on 05/03/1836 as a Christian students fraternity, it was the first with a "no fencing" policy. Its members are known as Uhus or Eagle Owls, the colours are Black-Gold-Black, and the motto is: "Frisch, Fromm, Froh, Frei" or " Fresh, Devout, Joyful, Free". It was a founder member of the Wingolfsbund in 1844 and of the Schwarzburgbund in 1887. Finally it was the first fraternity to be reinstated in 1946, after W.W.II, and still exists today.
