(.i. barr bís am cenn in rígh), Ériu ii 4.7 (n-eoburu oir,
n-eobarrud v.l.). Marstrander ( Bidrag 28 ) prefers the
reading n-eoburu, which he connects with ON jǫfurr, AS
65 eofor. As the passage is mainly a list of animals the
meaning boar would not be out of place here, but Marstrander
( Bidrag 29 ) suggests boar-helmet (N. galthjelm).
