There was also at that time a famous leader of fiana in Munster, even Ailill Flann Bec. There was mutual strife between them on both sides; and they made raids upon each other. Fothad's shape was more marvellous than that of Ailill, but Ailill's wife was more marvellous and delightful than Fothad's wife. Then Failbe was sent by7 Fothad to woo Ailill's wife in disregard of her husband. She said that she would not go with them until he should give her bride-price to her. She fixed her bride-price, even a bushel of gold and a bushel of silver and a bushel of white bronze. Failbe reports that answer to Fothad. Fothad said she should have that. The woman asked [...]8 she would take it in whatever form it was offered (?). He said that each man of Fothad's household had six rivets in his spear, viz. two rivets of gold and two rivets of silver and two rivets of white bronze; and they would take three rivets out of every spear and leave three rivets in every spear, and thus three bushels would be filled with them, even a bushel of gold, and a bushel of silver, and a bushel of bronze.
