It would be hard to imagine the "loscann" appearing in any OI or MI
poem in any naturalistic or positive way.
BTW, there is an odd gloss of "loiscend" in Sanas Cormac 257. In part:
Colpdae .i. don chiunn bis fair rohainmniged .i. in loiscend .i. cu
Colpdae, i.e. he was named after the head that is on him, i.e. the
frog, i.e. "a hound of gnawing / ravaging".
That makes the critter sound mighty unpleasant!
