I view Lhuyd’s <iụ> as examples that can be written <yw> or <uw> or <u> today.
†biụ, vêụ 'life'
dhiụ 'to you' (dhiụχ)
piụ 'who' (pu)
Deụ 'god' (though Lhuyd does not have [diʊ])
byw, du, dhywgh, dyw, Jesu, lyw, pyw, Duw.
Of these, du, dyw, Duw are redundantly marked orthographically, but there's just no need for <iw> aongside <yw> and <uw> and <u> in this set.
