By the Irish themselves wrongly associated with Dea, npr. m.: Dea mac Degad a quo Inber nDeda i Crích Cualann, Dinds. § 40. 1 . Garman Glas mac Dedad cuius frater erat Dea a quo Aband Dea ┐ Inber ṅDea i Crích Cualann, LL 159 a 5 f.b. Dea mac Dedhadh a quo Inber nDea a Crích Chualand, D II 2, 27 a . Dea was the name of the river; cf. Ban-dea, name of the Shannon, Ardm. 11 b 1 ; Dub-dea `Nigra Dea' (River Dee in Scotland), Thes. ii 279. 6 . It seems identical with Ptolemy's Dēvā, the river Dee in Scotland. Ptolemy's Δηούας ποταμοῦ ἐκβολαί may render an Ir. Inber nDee, Inber nAbann Dee. Gen. Dēvās compared with Arm. Dee shows that in the 2nd century the Irish substitution of -ās by -iās in fem. ā-stems had not yet taken place.—Cf. Pictet RC ii 2 . Holder 1273 .
