Translation

'of Foth?'

Commentary

An o in Ogham may be short or long, so the form could be genitive of a personal name VŎTAS or VŌTAS. The former would correspond to an Old Irish o-stem Foth, and the latter to an Old Irish o-stem Fúath (earlier Fóth). No such names have been identified in manuscript sources. The Latin personal name Votus is rare, and not attested in Irish contexts.
