The scribe wrote the second letter as a 'g' which he then (partially

There seems to me to be a tiny (and superfluous!) 'i' squeezed between the
letters -ad- in slabradaib.
The parallel passage in Silva Gadelica reads as follows:
caeca mílcon co slapradaib créduma forro . scéith copradacha foraib uile.
