The unusual wavy shape of this suspension stroke (an allograph of the common suspension stroke) is found in the part of the Tallaght manuscript (RIA MS 3 B 23) that contains the Monastery of Tallaght and Apgitir chrábaid. It often occurs over the letter t, following the wavy shape of its headstroke. See the example below. Cf. E. J. Gwynn • Walter J.
