85 ? 1 nena n g s. in the expression: réim nena (? n-ena), occurring
in law tracts: reim nena rl. In deoraid De ma dorinde tri
ferta faillsighi ag tiachtain dochum thire i fiadnaise righ ┐
tuaithi, is saíre dō cona sedaib ┐ a bairc ┐ mana derna act
aen no dedhe dib is saire dó cona sedaib ┐ comroind bairci
dligthighi fora bairc ┐ amhail chleirech he fein a nEirinn im
5besgna ris, H. 3.18 p. 436b ( O'C. 1047 - 8 ). A similar gloss on
rēm nena occurs in H. 5.15 p. 8b ( O'Don. 1591 ) which adds:
cin co derna fert itir, masa cindti conid deoraidh Dé cena, no
saerand cona crud ┐ comraind bairce. Cf. Laws v 16.11 fg.
These passages seem to allude to some procedure by which a
10`deoraid Dé' landing in a stranger territory could attest the
genuineness of his profession and thus secure his vessel and
goods from confiscation. Possibly réim n. ¤ = course over the
wave (see 3 nin) or over water, if the true form be r. n-ena; cf.
comul n-ena `meeting-place of waters', Met. Dinds. iii 142.3 .

15 ? 2 nena n pl.: .vii. nena , IT iii 54 § 99 (part of the tenth year's
course for poets; some kind of poetic composition?). Cf. is í
ín gramadach na nglond ... na reimenda, reim neana is na
dúili deighfheadha, BB 17b7 ; perh. we should read n-ena in
both exx., but cf. 1 nin.

O'Dav. 1299 ; the first gloss connects the word with nenaid,
the others with naidm. By Ascoli 617 and Pedersen, Gram.

occurs in Ml. 2d2 ) with prosthetic n.
