Site Notes

Anon/1925, 463: `Professor Llyod said Llanarthney was one of the greater churches dedicated to St. David. Since it appeared in a poem by Gwynfardd Brycheiniog as Llan Adneu, i.e., the church of the Deposit, it would seem beyond any doubt to be the Depositi Monasterium of Rhigyfarch's Life of St. David. Mr. Wade Evans, in his edition of the life, had suggested a different identification, but he [Lloyd] was not convinced'.
