BROINIENAS KOI NETTA-TTRENALUGOS

Translation

'of B? here of Nad-Trianlug'

Commentary

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).

'KOI, which is invariably written with the first supplementary character X and is alone among formula words in not being attested later, has been explained as a word defining locality, 'here', analogous to HIC IACIT in the British inscriptions though it is never used in these ' (McManus 1991, 119).

McManus (1991, 109-10) gives a full discussion of the forms NIOT(T)A and NET(T)A 'nephew (sister's son), champion'. cf. CIIC 26. Donaghmore
