Not quite, but let's say a bold condensed version of Hermann Zapf's Melior?

Or what about this one?

This seems like a perfect time to bring up Miles Newlyn's Verona again, which he told us was based on Melior.

Verona seems close yeah... this is going to be harder than I thought...

Mike Cina's Cam is an all-caps font that could use the W upside-down to make this M. Vertically stretching a bit would enhance the resemblance to your stone letters that have probably little connection to fonts as we know them.
