I think this is Irish. Does Pangur Ban mean "white cat"? I was given some lovely calligraphy, a long poem entitled "Pangur Ban". The rest is in English. I don't know if it's a joke or real, but the attribution at the bottom is "A marginal poem on Codex S. Pauli by a student of the monastery of Carinthia 8th/9th century". It is longish, but the first four lines give the sense: I and my white Pangur Each has his special art His mind is set on hunting mice Mine is on my special craft Is my "white cat" guess correct? Thanks.
