NOTES.



cobled, a compund of con and fled.



ros-gab, seized them or him, s being an infixed pronoun
of the third person singular or plural.



sesra, borrowed from Latin sextarius, W. hestawr. Cf.
ceithri fichet sesrai do lemlacht, Harl. 5280, fo.
66b. As to the probable size of the measure, see
Ducange, who says: "Apud Anglos sextarius vini
continet quattour jalones."



é-tairisse, the opposite of tairisse, faithful, loyal, hence,
trusted. Cf., uair rob iat ro ba tairisi lasin ríg
do thaithaigid in bairr, "because they it was who
were trusted by the king to visit the crown," Echtra
Nerai. 8.



atlochur, with or without buide, I thank.



roguth, cf. hond rogud, gl. extensione, Ml. 37d, b.



roigthir, gl. prodacatur, Ml. 110, I.



dús - dho fhius, to know, introducing indirect questions.



fo-n-rigni, that has made us, with infixed pronoun (-n-)
of the first person plural.
