With extension of meaning: maise th'anbhfhaise [t'onfaise, thanfaisi v.l.] i n-úir `well it fitted thee not to rest 'neath earth', Dán Dé xxix 21 (of Christ in the tomb); the rhyme with cladhchlaise supports the reading t'anfaise; the translation suggests an abstr. from anfois(s) `unsteady, restless'. The meaning may be thy plunge into the grave, cf. `léim' of preced- ing verses. But cf. onfais `disorder, topsy-turvey, . . . tossing, tumbling, rolling to and fro', P. O'C.
