Abbott suggested that the collection now comprising vols 19 and 20 (pp. 565–660) was “written about s. xiv”, but Gwynn “cannot agree with Dr. Abbott in referring certain parts to the fourteenth century (p. 214, 565)”.(1)n. 1 T. K. Abbott • E. J. Gwynn, Catalogue of Irish MSS in TCD (1921): 153 (Abbott); 358 (Gwynn). More recently, Sharon Arbuthnot has suggested that a 16th-century date is more probable.(2)n. 2 Sharon Arbuthnot, Cóir anmann: a late Middle Irish treatise on personal names: Part 1, vol. 1 (2005): 4.
