Cf. DGB 116 (Reeve and Wright 2007, 157.228-9; cf. Wright 1988, 111, prophecy 53): Egredientur ex eo septem leones capitibus hircorum turpati ‘From it will emerge seven lions, disfigured with the heads of goats’ (Reeve and Wright 2007, 156). Prophecies 47 to 52 inclusive are not represented in Merl; for the possibility that there is an extensive lacuna at this point in Hb see Merl 2012, 39-44).
