G. mathron n. “herd, herdsman, shepherd” (Category: Herdsman)

⚠️G. mathron, n. “herd, herdsman, shepherd” (Category: Herdsman)
ᴺS. !mavron “shepherd, herdsman”
ᴺS. ^nethor “herd, flock”

A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s glossed “herd, herdsman, shepherd”, an agental form of G. moth “sheep”, with a variant mastir which is probably the feminine form “*shepherdess” (GL/56). The gloss “herd” is reinforced by the fact that Tolkien equated it to G. nethron “herd” (GL/60).
