COLLABOT MUCOI LUGA/ MAQI LOBACCONA

Translation

'of Cóelub descendant of Lug son of Lubchú?'

Commentary

In this inscription the suvival of -A (from earlier -AS) in LOBACCONA combined with the complete loss of the final syllable (-AS) in COLLABOT suggests a date in the first half of the sixth century (McManus 1991, 94, 97).

The tribal name MUCOI LUGA, which also occurs on CIIC. 267 Dromore II, is as yet unidentified (McManus 1991, 112).

The formula (typically X MAQI Y MUCOI Z) deviates from the norm here with X MUCOI Y MAQI Z.
