Maybe. Quite possible. Maybe these are just spontaneous alternations of noun
suffixes that for the native speakers of the time would have been /@s/ or
/@ns/.

Notice also mar myn ov descans servya BM 524.

 

I wonder whether dyscas, descas is not simply a variant of descans; cf.
mernes for mernans 'death', and bewnes, bewnas, bownas, bounas for bewnans
'life'.

In the case of 'dyskas', we have no plural attested.

Pascon agan Arluth: dyskas
Ordinalia: deskes; dyskes; thescas; thyskes; tyskes

However, one might posit a plural, '*descosow'.
