A `dartaid' is reckoned among the `minchethrae' and
`sesc-slabrae,' the small and still unproductive cattle:

clithar sét)speaks of adartaid firenn a male dartaid
(Corm. YBL) anddartaid bainenn a she-dartaid; the
55application to the female is very old as thenpr. f. Dartaid
shows.
Frequent in the Laws, indicating the `sét' of the lowest
value, the `sét gabla.' Its value was one-twelfth of a cow,
i.e.two screpalls (not three as Atkinson says), or three
60`miach' ( ii 258. 14 ); thedairt(= threescrepalls) ranks
higher:dígu sét somaíne .i. in sét is díthogaidi somaíne

Dairtanddartaidboth originate from the root ofdairid,
dáir, but their relation to each other is not clear;dartaid
looks like a nom. ag.,dairtlike a vn. Both words became
early obsolete, probably in early Mid.-Ir. The formdairtid
30(dairtida, Laws v 386. 3 f.b. ) shows the influence ofdairt.
Dartadain the passage:nocon ḟarrgaib acht teora dartada
in Hérind .i. dairt i Cliu dairt i lLiniu dairt i Cuailṅgiu LL
389 a 10 , is either due to confusion ofdairtanddartaid, or
it is an early instance of the Mid.-Ir.pl.in -adha.—Cf.
35 dáir,dairid,dairt,dartán.
