or2 (c.1230)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 25,935b aura; Gdf: 1,501b aure /5,625a ore; GdfC: ; TL: 6,1209 ore 1; DEAF:  ore 1; DMF:  ore 1; TLF:  aura / aure; OED:  aura n.; MED:  aura n.; DMLBS: 162b aura ]
eure,  ure  

A rare word, also in English and Continental French, with possible confusion with or1 (cf. the variant of Pet Phil 954) and ure1 (cf. the Dest Rome citation). Those variants ending in -e could also be interpreted as ending in -é, in which case they should be considered variants of oré1 (see commentary box of that article).
