Freeman (Philip M.): Visions from the dead in Herodotus, Nicander of Colophon, and the Táin bó Cúailnge.
In Emania 12 (1994), pp. 45–48.
Draws attention to citation of Nicander (probably datable to 2nd c. B.C.) by Tertullian concerning a Celtic belief in visions of the dead appearing to those who sleep by tombs of ancestors. Suggestion that this is comparable with recovery of the Táin in Fallsigud Tána bó Cualgne.
