Folld. by gen.: ba-sa cethreochur a cath, ba-sam cethreochur a nith, ba-sa nainendach mo namad a match for (?), Anecd. iii 53.22 ( Eg. 88 ) = bá-sa ennach mo námat, LU 9335 , where the two preceding sentences are omitted; the compiler of the Eg. version may have been led by the word cethreochur (= ceth- rochair?) to connect naindenach with the num. noí = I was a match for nine of my foes. Meyer, Wortk. 222 , translates neunspitzig `nine-pointed', taking the word as a compd. of endach `pointed' < ind.
