VI Fig. Degree, rank, order ; Synon. miad, grád. This sense has been inferred from the following passages: Dia fadein dobeir datha ┐ gráda ardḟlatha, LL 149 b 29 . la cessad Secundi co slógud cech datha, Fél. Nov. 15 . It may also be sought in such passages as `a Domnaill na ndath' BB 50 a 35 , or `a éicsiu datha,' Metr. Dinds. ii 48. 38 , see III above. According to the Cáin-law of fosterage ( Laws ii 146 sq. ) the colour of the clothes varied according to rank and dignity: fo miad cháich éitid a mic ótha fer miudbu co ríg ( ii 146. 10 ). Satin and scarlet were prescribed for the son of the king of Erin ( sroll ┐ scarloit do mac ríg Érenn, ib. 146. 16 ), black, yellowish, grey, and blay clothes for maic na ngrád féne ( 148. 3 ). Similarly the colours were fixed for the mac in airrech, mac in airrech túis, m. in a. aird, m. in a. forgill, and mac na ríg.

X COMPS. (a) dath-, see below. (b) -dath in cpds. almost exclusively in the sense of I; frequent with adjectives denoting colour: dub-dath, crón-dath, gorm-dath, q.v.

Forms: Dega, dóel, Dega, dega, dega, daig, dego, déga

n d. A certain black insect, probably a chafer or black-beetle , synonymous with doel according to old grammarians. Dega in early Mid.-Ir. gave way to dóel . In the phrase `duibithir degaid' it is frequently confused with dethach `smoke,' so always in YBL.— For the n s. cf. 1 dega, Oss. v 262. 4 ; further the npr. Dega LL 205 b7 (not for Deda), and perhaps also the a s. dega in the old Eg. version of BDD.—Etymology by Stokes ZCP iii 468 , Ériu ii 152 , BDD voc.; but dega is hardly to be separated from daig, gen. dego `fire, pang.'
