The citation seems a remini- scence of: iar rig mná Nuadat (name of part of the upper course of the river Boyne), RC xxvi 18 § 35 , cf. Met. Dinds. iii 26.15 and ZCP viii 106.6 , where N. is a proper name; the word núadat (-ait) may have been used in B. na f. in sense given above through the influence of the legend of Núadu Airgetlám, or misunderstanding of the gloss nuadat .i. in ríg, LU 8910 (taken as = in rig).

npr. m. a name borne by more than one mythical king of Ireland and later by some historic persons. The orig. vowel is ō, cf. the dat. forms Nodonti, Nodenti ( Corp. Inscr. Lat. vii 138 , 140 ).

Nuadhait, Keat. i 218.36 (Nuadha v.l.), but: lé Nuadha, ii 2175 . The n s. Nuadhat (-ad) is occas. found, BB 46b37 (g s. Nuadhat, ib. 36 ); g s. Nuadhaid (: cuid), Content. vi 154.

(b) traces of a parallel n-declension occur in early texts: g s. in oratorio Nodan , AU 808 , cf. ath Dísirt Nuadhat, ii 448.5 (prob. same place, see Hog. Onom. s.v.
