mór darach

In Celtic Spain , Arcobriga may be aircur brígh , Scot G airc brigha "peak pitch/ power".
Welsh bri, dignity, rank, Cornish bry, Breton bri, respect, *brîga, *brîgo-. Spanish brigand.
"Pitch : A level of the intensity of something, especially a high level".
Latin arcanus "secret, hidden, concealed," from arcere "to close up, enclose, contain," from arca"chest, box, place for safe-keeping," from PIE root *ark- "to hold, contain, guard" source also of Greek arkos "defense," arkein "to ward off" .
This guy from west of Arcobriga has a peak hat. I can't post a link . If you google -
A priest with an apron and a conical cap holding a jug and a bird over an altar in order to perform a sacrifice. Museo Numantino, Soria. (Sopeña 1995: Figs. 10-11). west of Arcobriga in Zaragoza. - it's 1/4 down the page.

and this is a peak from Arcobriga:
google - Scottish Archaeological Research Framework arcobriga vase -. click on Images
It has 2 pillars with arch and a tree in the centre.


" Iberian script, BRIGANT_N (or PRIKANT_N, as Iberic script does not distinguish voiced and unvoiced consonants) inscribed on a Celtiberian coin, of a Celtiberian goddess."_ Garret Olmstead.
Brigantia is a goddess in Scotland and England , holding a globe . In Lebor Gabála Érenn, Breogán founded Brigantia tower for his son Íth who glimpses Ireland to invade and settle it. This may be the origin of round towers.

On the Arcobriga vase , the top tree in the peak may be a mór darach . How would you translate arcobriga?

"The goddess Mylitta (Mesopotamia) or Astarte (Phoenicia) was represented by a female date palm."

"Astarte (Greek: ἈÏ႒τάÏτη, AstártÄ“) is the Hellenized form of the Middle Eastern goddess Astoreth (Northwest Semitic), a form of Ishtar (East Semitic)".

Mithra is shown in 2 carvings as a palm tree .

Stylised palm trees are shown to the side of the Ishtar gate Babylon.

Here are the symbolic palms.

so this may be a palm tree , between the lions.

At the centre of the Arcobriga pillars is a block with 2 "eyes"and tree.

https://www.google.com/search?q=arco...vtXYqc-jRH7soM:
It may be this , maha daru of east India , mahan daruka in Sanskrit.

Jagannath means "lord of the universe", mór darach.

In future, could you compact your posts in a form that is accessible (i.e. not a data dump) so as to allow other posters a better opportunity to discuss. Thanks. /Mod.
