Ó Corráin suggests that the episode in which Éogan accepts advice from his seers concerning the famine, was modelled on the biblical tale of Pharaoh's dream (Genesis 41). The author of the tale was also familiar with a version of the legend relating to Míl Espáine.(3)n. 3 Donnchadh Ó Corráin, ‘Irish origin legends and genealogy: recurrent aetiologies’ in History and heroic tale... (1985): 53. Cf. Cath Maighe Léna, Tochmarc Moméra and Cóir anmann §§ 36-39 (in Stokes' edition).
