n (< ON hjalt, pl. hjǫlt, `the boss or knob at the end of a sword's hilt; also the guard between the hilt and the blade.' See Marstrander, Bidrag 77 , 44 ). Usually the guard between the hilt and the blade; the crosspieces at right angles to the blade and hilt, apparently always pl. (see Marstr. l.c.); the Norse pl. is used in ref. to the two guards, confining the hand above and below; in Ir. the upper knob is perhaps distinguished in mul-elta (q.v.), but elta in one instance clearly means the guard next the blade; in the others there is nothing to define the location: sádis C. a chlaideb co ránic conici a elta trisin tech LL 268 bx = MU 44 x . claidheamh co n-éltaibh óir BR 146.14 = BB 275 b1 . claidem ...cona eltaib snaidtib slemonsoilsib do raighnib na lecc lógmar, CCath. 4689 . no láetis na saignena...a cobradha da sciathaib ┐ a n-elta da claidhmibh 4779 . bai claideb la S., orduirnn a elta, airgidi a fulang, forordha a comet, breachtfaebrach a éo IT iii 199 § 59 . inad elta a claideb TBC 2995 . e.¤ dét = ON tannhjǫlt, claideb co n-eltaib dét = tannhjaltat sverd Marstrander, Bidrag 44 . claidib debennacha co n-eltaib dét co n-imduirnib airgdidib, TFerbe 4 . coica claideb n-órduirn n-intlaisse co n-eltaib dét ecoir óir ┐ argit 35 . claideb co n-eltaib dét TBC 1718 (= calc ded TBC² 1113 ). 5196 . colga det (.i. claidme co n-eltuibh déd), Ériu ii 3.12 (n. 32) . cloidhiomh...go n-a altaibh do chnáimh eileaphaint, Todd Lect. iv 80.14 (CRR2). bai claidium Murchaid ar na insma, ┐ elta det batar aicci rolegsat re rotesbach im[b]ualta, Cog. 196.2 .
