Miach

Irish - A physician. Son of Dian Cecht. Brother of Airmid. He became even more famous as a physician than his father. Where his father had made an artificial hand for Nuada from silver, Miach made him a real flesh-and-blood replacement. In one story, he replaced an eye lost by one of Nuada's servants with the eye of a cat. His father killed Miach out of jealousy, killing him only at the fourth attempt after Miach had healed himself after the first three swordstrokes. It is said that 365 herbs grew on his grave. Also commonly referred to as Miach, Midach or Midach.
