couvade or period during which the Ulstermen were debili-
tated and unable to fight. There are two independent
accounts of the cause, one published in ZCP viii 120 (< Harl.
5280 f. 44b ); the other exists in varying versions, two of
20which (from Harl. 5280 f. 42b and LL 125b42 - 126a resp.) are
published by Windisch, Berichte der Sächs. Gesellsch. der
Wissenschaften 1884 p. 336 fg. , a third of later date from
H. 3.18 p. 46b by Thurneysen, ZCP xii 251 ; in Harl. and LL
the tale is entitled Noinden Ulad. See Thurneysen Helden-
25sage 359 fg. Acc. to LL: cóic laa ┐ cethri aidche no coic
aidche ┐ cethri laa. issed sin ro boí noinden Ulad. Nert mna

noindnin, TBC² 874. ma dodeochaid assa noennin, TBC²
1461. In TBC the phrase cess noínden is used: atá Conchobar
'na chess noinden i nEmain, 225 (= ina chess, TBC² 45 ), cf.
4544 . The title: in ceas naigen (= cess noíden) is given to
40the story in YBL 211a39 , likewise in H. 3.18 (in ces naidhen,
see ZCP xii 252 ), a name used also by Keat. ii 2424 (see
noídiu).

2 noínden n[f.] (same word as preceding? see Thurneysen,
Heldensage p. 361 ; but the connexion of meaning is not
45clear) word of doubtful signification, in follg. exx. apparently
warlike gathering, mêlée, fray or something similar. ni thecat

28 § 19 ( LL 107a27 ). ni dechaid asa noendin riam [cen] guin
Ultaig, Death-tales 36 § 1 (of Cét mac Mágach); in the three
preceding exx. Thurneysen, Heldensage 361 n. 2 , takes the
55phrase as = asa noídin `from his boyhood'. ni bo choir mo

60.i. tinol sluaigh mhoir, O'Dav. 1296 ; Stokes compares Lat.
nundinae `market-day' (< Lat. novem); if the meaning assembly
be right, the original sense may have been the time occupied
by a warlike assembly or muster. naindean no naoindean .i.

nainendach mo namad a match for (?), Anecd. iii 53.22 ( Eg.
88 ) = bá-sa ennach mo námat, LU 9335 , where the two
preceding sentences are omitted; the compiler of the Eg.
75version may have been led by the word cethreochur (= ceth-
rochair?) to connect naindenach with the num. noí = I was
a match for nine of my foes
. Meyer, Wortk. 222 , translates
neunspitzig `nine-pointed', taking the word as a compd. of
endach `pointed' < ind. Cf. nainden .i. gaisced, ut est ba-sa
80nainnenach mo namait, H. 3.18 p. 416 ( O'C. 965 ). nain-
