A word of doubtful meaning occurring only twice :-- Bærst bordes lǽrig, Byrht, Th. 140, 6; By. 284. Ne him bealubenne gebiden hæfdon ofer linde lǽrig, Cd. 154; Th. 192, 29; Exod. 239. Grein suggests comparison with λαισήïoν a buckler, target,
and that the word like rand
may mean the rim of the shield
and also the body of the shield.
Either rendering is admissible so far as the sense is concerned.
