Attestation: CO·66 (kopiụ) (1)
Status: probable
Language: Celtic
Word Type: proper noun
Semantic Field: personal name

Grammatical Categories: nom. sg. masc.
Stem Class: on

Morphemic Analysis: kob-(i)i̯-ū
Phonemic Analysis: /kob(i)ū/
Meaning: 'Kopiu'


See CO·66 on the reading.

If the reading is correct, the best analysis of the sequence is as a hypocoristic personal name in -on from a compound name with kob(i)i̯o- as first element (cf. uercobius, cobiatia, DLG: 120).
