(a) Ogham , a species of writing or script used in Ireland in
65early times, though prob. adapted from the Roman alphabet
(see, however, Macalister, The Secret Languages of Ireland 28 ).
In Irish ogham the letters (25 in all) were represented by
strokes, vertical or oblique and varying in number from one
to five, drawn from one or both sides of a foundation-line
70(druim); it was commonly employed on stone pillars or
rectangular staves of wood, of which an angle served as
`druim'. The only extant specimens are inscriptions on
burial- (or memorial-?) stones. Its invention was traditionally
ascribed to Ogma mac Elathan (seeOgma):athair ogaim
75Ogma, mathair ogaim lam no sgian(i.e. Ogma was the in-
ventor of Ogham, its efficient cause is hand or knife), Auraic.
2813 . The letters in theo. ¤ alphabet bore the names of trees
or shrubs and the alphabet itself was calledBeithe-luis(-nin)
from the opening letters b, l, (n). Ogham script seems to
80have been cultivated in the bardic schools throughout the
Middle Ages and in the Auraicept in BB and other MSS. 93
various kinds of ogham alphabet based on theBeithe-luis
are described. In the curriculum of the bardic schools (given
in IT iii 32 § 2 , 34 § 9 , §12 ) 50 `ogums' (? ogham alphabets)
85form part of the course in the first, second, and third years
respectively. In heroic lit. we findoghamwriting used for
burial inscriptions, cryptic messages and occas. for divination
(wooden staves or rods being used for the last purpose).

Ogham inscriptions were also used to attest sales, ownership
of property, and for mere-stones;ogum na creca do beth i
llic firt, H. 3.18 p. 251 ( O'C. 484 ), where a tombstone is used
