Hueil or Maeloc
This guy records Gildas's brother as 'Mailoc' or 'Maelog' and says he was revered as a saint on 30 January, the day following Gildas's feast. Different brother or alt name of this one? — LlywelynII 22:59, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
- Mailocus is the name of one of Gildas' brothers (along with Cuillus [=Hueil], Egreas, and Alleccus) in the Latin Life written by the Monk of Rhuys.Cagwinn (talk) 23:47, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
I have been working on trying to develop some stumps. I have come across Maen Huail and there is little that can be done to expand it. The reason is that to understand the significance of the stone you need the context of this article (Hueil mab Caw). I propose that Maen Huail is merged. Any opinions?
- Yes, I see what you mean. If this lump of rock had any significance apart from the legend that attaches to it then I might be against a merge. As it is, count me as a Support. --Antiquary (talk) 16:41, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
- It has been a notable object since at least 1699 and is a scheduled monument with legal protection. I am not convinced that having a name that links it to the legend means that is its only notable attribute. I would suggest that while it is of interest to the legend to have a [spurious?] stone relating to it, in terms of the notable places in Ruthin, this has a fair claim to an entry of its own. It would not really be relevant to the legend article, for instance, to discuss what the stone was really used for, or to have an ancient place infobox. On these grounds I would be against.
