n (glér, gléir). An abstract, the precise ṁeaning of which in any given context is not always easy to decide. It seems to have the two primary senses : (1) abundance ; (2) choice, élite (passing into that of excellence in general). The former meaning seems to be that of the numerous occurrences of the word in SR ; the latter meaning prevails in the more recent exx. The sense ` purity, brightness ' given by some translators has no support, and is probably due to a confusion with gleór.
