G[E]LẠGN[I A]V[I   ̣  ̣ ?   ̣  ̣


'of Gelán grandson of..?'


As Manning and Moore (1997, 372) suggest regarding GELAGNI, 'if a long é was intended (Gellagni) would be cognate with Old Irish Gíallán, related to gíall `a hostage'. If a short e was intended (Gelagni), it would be congante with Old Irish *Gelán, related to gel 'bright''. The former is actually attested as a personal name in the Félire Óengusso (eDIL s.v. gíallán).
