HRING--HRÓC 567

Phenix's) sweóra is swylce smæ-acute;te gold, E. S. viii. 478, 57; and Ors. 5, 14; S. 248, 9 (in Dict.). In this latter passage, however, the original seems to intend a halo with prismatic colouring), Ph. 305. VII. a group of persons standing in a circle:--Wuldorful apostolan hring gloriosus apostolorum chorus, Angl. ii. 357, 10. Fugla cynn þone hálgan hringe beteldað, Ph. 339.

hring. in wópes hring. Add: Though a noun, hring, denoting sound may be inferred from the compounds bel-, nón-hring, it is hardly with this meaning that the word occurs in the phrase wópes hring; for the epithet blát (An. 1281) is not applicable to sound, and the parallel phrase, hát heáfodwylm (El. 1133), denotes tears. Perhaps, though, there is the same extension of meaning as in the cases of hlimme, hlynn, hlýde (?), where words denoting a stream or torrent are connected with words denoting sound (see next word).
