Attestation: TI·5 (arimai) (1)
Status: uncertain
Language: perhaps Celtic
Word Type: proper noun
Semantic Field: personal name

Grammatical Categories: dat. sg.
Stem Class: ā

Morphemic Analysis: arim-āi̯
Phonemic Analysis: ?-/āi̯/
Meaning: 'to/for Arima'


Reading uncertain, see the inscription page.

If correct, the form is an ā-stem personal name in the dative; apart from arimanus (AcS I: 215, probably a variant of ariomanus, see Meid 2005: 146–148), of which it could conceivably be a hypocorism, the only available comparandum is unclear RIG M-46 arimuṣ.
