CATTUVIR

Translation

'Caither'

Commentary

This personal name appears to be a compound of CAT(T)U- (OI cath 'battle') and WIR- (OI fer 'man'). cp. CIIC 250. CATTUVVIRR, CIIC 221. CATVVIRR (post syncope) and probably CIIC 184. CATUVIQ? (? leg. -R) (McManus 1991, 102-3, 105).

In this inscription the -I ending has been lost, which may suggest a date in the middle or second half of the sixth century (McManus 1991, 95, 97).
