939 (Sawyer 446); BCS 667, dated 930, but with later witnesses (Professor Whitelock has suggested that much of the 36 Episcopal dates for the province oj Canterbury, Sjo-pjo witness-list has been supplied from another Abingdon charter, BCS 883 of 949); and BCS 670 and 671, a pair of suspect charters dated 931, but with witnesses belonging to 934 or 957 x 939. Crawford Charters (p. 137, n. 1) says 941 for the two charters, but this seems untenable. ECW 455 gives 934-9. The presence of ^Elfric of Hereford would give a closer dating if his predecessor signs in 937 (see below, Hereford, Tidhelm).
A FW agrees with these lists except that in the Elmham list he puts Hunferth instead of Alhheard, thus having two bishops of this name, one before and one after Sibba. WM, who arranges the bishops in contemporary pairs, tries to remedy this error, but it is the second, instead of the first, Hunferth, whom he replaces by Alhheard. He writes Sigga for Sibba and Edredus for Eardred. 3 An Acca episcopus appears at a synod alleged in BCS 91 to have met at Clofeshob in 716, but he is probably Acca of Hexham, since in 716 Northumbria was not a separate province.
137, n. 1) says 941 for the two charters, but this seems untenable. ECW 455 gives 934-9. The presence of ^Elfric of Hereford would give a closer dating if his predecessor signs in 937 (see below, Hereford, Tidhelm). BCS 705 and its AngloSaxon version BCS 706 are more difficult. They are dated 16 December 934, with the indiction for 934, although strictly speaking it should have been changed to the indiction for 935 after September. The text is somewhat suspicious, but the witness-list is particularly full, the key signature being that of iElfheah of Winchester (iElfheah of Wells also signs, so there is no danger of confusion).
