Tea, wife of Érimón - One of two of the warrior’s wives, Tea is associated with the royal site of Tara, giving this significant historic location its Irish name: Teamair or Tea Mur - Tea’s walls. However, teamhair is a common place name, referring to a hill or prominence. The relief image of some of Tara’s most prominent features form the relief of this sculpture: Teach Cormaic and the Forradh. Tara and Geashill are linked via the Esker Riada and the Hill of Tara features prominently in the original text, where one of the major battles with the Tuatha de Dána was fought according to legend. More factually, the elevated esker would have provided convenient and dry access through the marshy midlands of Ireland, both to Tara in prehistory and later to sites like Clonmacnoise in the medieval period. Tea is represented here by an Early Bronze Age lunula, c. 2000 BCE - a kind of circular necklace with twisted terminals, made of thinly hammered gold, often with rich decoration.
