Silver-hand.
 
Nuad, the chieftain who led back the tribe of the Danaans from Scotland to Ireland, whence they had migrated. Nuad of the Silver-hand had an artificial hand of silver made by Cred, the goldsmith, to supply the loss sustained from a wound in the battle of Moytura. Miach, son of Dian Kect, set it on the wrist. (O’Flaherty: Ogygia, part iii. chap. x.) (See IRON HAND.)   1
