Why is he called Mytern Alwar?

He is mentioned along with Mytern Margh, Mytern Casvelyn i.e. Cassivelaunus and Mytern Pygys.
This last might be the same as Ricatus, with Pygys a misreading for Rygys.
Otherwise it might be for *Tygys < Tacitus. 

Re: Alroron. What is the origin of Alysaryn in the play by Peggy Pollard?
