ṂẠQI-DECC[E]DẠ/ ṂẠQ̣Ị/ GLASICONAS

Translation

'of Mac-Deichet son of Glaisiuc'

Commentary

This is one of the inscriptions listed by McManus (1991, 94-5) in which apocope (loss of final consonants or syllables) begins to show itself (MAQI-DECCEDA (earlier -AS), cp. CIIC 66. Faunkill and the Woods, Cork: MAQI-DECCEDDAS). It may be dated to the first half of the sixth century (McManus 1991, 97).

The persosnal name GLASICONAS is a compound of GLAS- 'light green, grey' and -CUNAS 'dog, hound, wolf' (McManus 1991, 102, 105).
