"The Welsh Triads" in The Red Book of Hergest

Pryderi loves pigs! Pryderi's called one of the "Three Powerful Swineherds of the Island of Britain." Lucky man that Arawn was nice enough to give him those oinkers. Pryderi got seven pigs from Arawn and gave them to his foster-father; because of his power, Pry apparently couldn't be deceived and couldn't be forced to do stuff.
