Provenance of MS: 'St. Augustine's, Canterbury' (Bronner, 2013, p. 5; Lowe, 1935, p. 3). The ms. date derives from: https://theparkerlibrary.wordpress.com/2018/12/12/parkers-anglo-saxon-kingdoms-the-corpus-glossary-ms-144/ and https://www.bl.uk/collection-items/corpus-glossary ; There are in fact more Old Irish entries than previously thought. See Lapidge "Career of Aldhelm, pp. 43-44). The Old Irish entries occur in the part of the Corpus glossary derived from the Erfurt-Épinal Glossary, composed during the Abbacy of Aldhelm in Malmesbury (675-709). There is some indication of an Iona connection, specifically with Adamnán. The dates for the Old Irish entries are based on a 30-year range of dates around the turn of the 8th century (hence the upper bound) and the abbacy of Adamnán (679-704). The weight assigned to the gloss is based on the idea that the Irish contribution under Adamnán needs to have been some time before the English reception under Aldhelm.
