It is odd alright. To me it looks like an 'a' followed by a small raised
'd'. (The 'a' looks like it started out life as an 'i'.)

The capital A is a bit disconcerting, but it is not that unusual for an
'inappropriate' letter to be capitalised. So, imposing my own punctuation,
I think Lec has:
Ad-fêt a [fh]âit: "Gorta for firu Êrind."
That nicely parallels the sentence in Laud Misc 610.
