On the question of an Anglo-Saxo vs. Celtic origin of the Latin inscription on the gold strip found in the Staffordshire Hoard, I note that Felix's Vita S. Guthlaci uses the Latin for this verse (and parallel) in his 8th century Old English text -- though this doesn't settle the issue, but merely increases the complexity.
