why is the spelling incorrect?

Why is the spelling on the gravestone inscription purposely spelled wrong? What is the meaning of doing it that way? On a headstone for a woman born 1809 and died 1901, part of the inscription says "Truly A Christian Woman" except Christian is spelled Christran with the "s" backwards.
