GIRAGNI

Translation

'of Gerrán'

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 (McManus1991, 97).

?Gerr 'short (-haired?)' and diminutive suffix -agni (>-an(n), Gerrán), cf. CIIC 119 Monataggart II: DALAGNI (>Dallán) (McManus1991, 107).
