GAMICUNAS

Translation

'of Gaimiuc?'

Commentary

GAMICUNAS is a compound of gam 'winter' and cĂș (gen. con) 'hound, wolf' (McManus 1991, 102, 105).

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 (as opposed to the -EAS ending of GOSOCTEAS). It may be dated to the first half, or the early second half, of the fifth century (McManus 1991, 97).
