TALAGNI MAQ̣[I ...

Translation

of Tálán son of ...

Commentary

This is one of the inscriptions listed by McManus (1991, 93-4) which appears to be among the earliest in the corpus showing no trace of vowel affection... or any of the developments postdating it. It may be dated to the first half, or the early second half, of the fifth century (McManus1991, 97).

Tál 'adze' and diminutive suffix -agni (>-an(n)) (McManus 1991, 107).
