Forms: Dane

, npr. f. = Gk. Δανάη. Sg 8 b 7 : hiatus causa interponimus u...ut Dauus Argiuus pauo, gl. dáne. The usual explanation of Dane as a masculine npr. in -io cannot be maintained; it is probably the Irish rendering of Δανάη (daughter of Akrisios). A similar confusion of Dauus (Daua) and Dane occurs Sg 32 b 5 , where the glossator to the Latin `Acrisioneis Dane fundasse colonis' adds the following note: .i. daua as maith li alaailiu and ní fitemmar can doberr.—Stokes, Ir. Gl. p. 130 , identifies dáne with dánae audax.
