I Miotaseolaíocht na nGael, ba shliocht na Fomhórach é Teathra (Sean-Ghaeilge Tethra). Tar éis dó bás d'fháil sa Dara Cath Maighe Tuireadh, bhí sé ina rí i Mag Mell.[1] Tar éis an chatha, thóg Oghma a chlaíomh, Orna, agus d'inis sé d'Oghma it gach a rinne sé.[2]

Sanasaíocht[cuir in eagar | athraigh foinse]

B'fhéidir é go bhfuil Tethra fréamhaithe ón bProtai-Ind-Eorpais *tet(e)ro-, le brí 'vácarnach'.[3][4][5] As Sean-Ghaeilge, tá a lán bríonna ann don fhocal, ina measc Tethra féin,[6] muir,[7] eiseamláir[8] agus scald-caróg[9][10]
