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

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'.
