"Chieftain of Dyfed"?
A figure briefly refered to in the Mabinogi. In "Pwyll",
In "Pwyll", Pendaran Dyfed names Pryderi after Pryderi has been found and returned to his true parents. He is then said to be Pryderi's fosterfather.
In "Branwen", he is said to be a young page who alone escapes Caswallawn's slaying of Caradawg's companions, because he escapes into the woods.
The figure is largely a mystery.
