CATTUBUTTAS Ṃ[AQI]

Translation

'of Cathub [son of]'

Commentary

This personal name contains one of the most commonly occurring elements found in ogham inscriptions CATU- (OI cath 'battle'). The EOI form of the name is Cathub, gen. Cathboth, later Cathbad ((McManus 1991, 102).

This is one of the inscriptions listed by McManus (1991, 93-4) to be among the earliest in the corpus showing no trace of vowel affection. It may be dated to the first half, or the early second half, of the fifth century (McManus 1991, 97).
