This is the name for the f sharp note, the ‘leading note’ in a scale of g. It seems to state that the name of this string can also refer to the entire tuning of the harp when the f strings are set to f sharp.
See also Tead leagtha, the bass note which is affected by (or defines) the tuning of the harp.
