Reference: Evonium, “after Ewin, who built it.”

Reference information:
Dunstaffnage is the place where the cornation stone of Scotland was for a time said to have been kept. It is on Loch Etive, Argyllshire, not far from Lomond and Glasgow. Hector Boece, who wrote in 1527, calls the Dunstaffnage the Evonium, “after Ewin, who built it.” (See The Perth Incident of 1396 from a Folk-Lore Point of View, by Robert C. Maclagan, M. D., Edinburg (sic) and London, 1905, p. 28. ) Maclagan says this connects the Evonium with “the Eoghannacht.” The Eoghannacht or Eoghanacht were, according to Maclagan, the descendants of Eoghan, or Eugenius, the oldest son of Oilill Olum, king of Munster, Ireland, in 186. This Eugenius was killed “at the battle of Magh Macroimhe (fought in Ireland about 186 A. D.), and the Eoghanacht are the descendants of his son Fiach, called the Broad Crowned. They have another name, Ui Fidh-gheinte. The suffix gen, which undoubtedly means ‘offspring,’ is accepted in Gaulish, and the Welsh forms of the name, Eugein, Euein, Ywein, are considered more directly from the original than the Gaelic form Eoghan. Rhys derives Eugein from the name of the Gaulish god Esus, and therefore makes it equal to ‘offspring of Esus.’ In Greek εùyεvής is ‘well-born,’ or ‘noble descent,’ and these Celtic names, whatever their spelling, which seems to be mostly phonetic, convey the meaning of the Greek word quoted.”

...Ewin was also a wise king, and he lived after his necessary wars quietly in Beregonium, but he preferred the site of Dunstaffnage, and he there built a castle, calling it after his own name—Evonium. It is also said that he was crowned sitting on the marble chair that came from Ireland.

Afterwards many kings lived in Dunstaffnage, until the capital was transferred to Scone. I might keep you longer, but I think I have given you a good specimen of one of our earliest historians existing ; he said he obtained the material from other still earlier writers.

The Scottish philosopher and historian, Hector Boece (now it would be Boyce, as in Pittsburgh’s Boyce Park - see, the Scots are everywhere), believes the stone was kept in the west of Scotland, at the lost city of Evonium. Evonium was itself founded by Evenus or Ewin (now called Irvine) - and yes, there is a town named Irvine, in Ayrshire. Evonium is chronicled to be the place where forty kings were crowned. It is also believed by some historians to be the ancient capital of Scotland, sited not far from Oban, and close to the religious center of Iona.
