n [m.] other doubtful meanings.

(a) mire ; acc. to Stokes, ZCP iii 470 , a loan-word from O.N. mýrr `slime' or A.S. mýre, in the follg. exx.: concicher ar m.¤ is ar ṅgrian | in trícha sin fer Galian, TBC 526 = ar ūir is ar grian, St., Add. cotomelad [= cotob-méla] ar mur [múr LU] ┐ grian, TBC² 1077. In both cases edd. suggest reading `úir', an emendation supported by the parallel in LU 8700 ( FB 52 ): coto[n]méla-ni in fer sin . . . ar úir ┐ grian, Cf. FM v 1722.12 quoted under 1 múr (a).

The quotation is a summary of Virg. Aen. iii 563 - 9 : laevam cuncta cohors remis ventisque petivit . . . Cyclopum adlabimur oris; perhaps ro gabsat co mur = they made for the coast (of Sicily on the left), cf. 1 múr (b). feib dosfuc for cúl . . . | ós cach múr cona mōrless, SR 3530 ; of God bringing back the sons of Jacob from Egypt; `shoal' Calder, but the journey was by land; the follg. mór-less (cf. 5010 ) suggests 1 múr in sense of wall or city or fig. barrier, obstacle.
