O'Dav. 1072 , O'Mulc. 537. An ollave was attached to the court of each of the provincial kings, often to those of sub- kings; and there seems (at some periods) to have been an `ard-ollam ' who exercised authority over all the provincial `filidh'. int ollam filedh iarna uirdned ag rig tuath, Laws i 42 z Comm. ollamh Uladh Fercertne, TBC 5467 St. Gilla C.

The inferior grades of `filidh' had to discharge various offices for the ollave, such as keeping his two dogs (task of the `cana') and fostering his children (that of the `drisech'); and the erenaghs (airchindig eclaisi) had to maintain his horses, H. 3.18 p. 133 ( O'C. 239 ).
