with <e> suggest that there was a variant in /ø/~/e/.
<buthy, buthys> is the commonest spelling. The question is whether <u>
means /y/ or /ø/.
I suspect we had /ø/ in monosyllables (ny's buth dour certan neffre OM
1692) but /y ~i/ before
a following /i/, cf. eus/usy, Late Cornish es but igge.
There was also a form with /y/ ~ /i/.
