n. (?) later f. and m. IGT, Decl. § 12 , §10 . Thurneysen ( ZCP xiv 342 , xvi 206 ) brings the word from 1 enech and glan, the original meaning being face-clearing (cf. Laws iv 318x , cited under 1 enech II). According to Hamp 1 enech + clú, Ériu xxv 266-67 , see also ÉC xxxii 220-21 . In later MSS. enechlann is sometimes found. enechclann Rawl. 118b39 , etc.

(a) compensation for insult, loss, or injury, for any- thing constituting a violation of enech (see 1 enech), pro- portionate to the status of the person to be compensated. In Laws Commentary it frequently renders lóg n-enech (e.g. Laws v 516.10 ). When the injury consisted in the death of a relative the eneclann was proportionate to the status of those to whom it was due, thus, although it occasionally renders díre (e.g. Laws i 42.14 v 50.5 Comm. ), it was in its early technical meaning distinct from corpdíre, which was proportionate to the status of the deceased.
