What kind of i-mutation is PG mahtiz OE meaht?

I don't see it (a ~ ea) in this table.

  • Off the top of my head (so take with a grain of salt), I think those are different words. PG has both *mahtiz and *mahtuz (i.e., both an i-stem and a u-stem), and I would guess the i-stem is behind OE miht, while the u-stem yielded meaht, so there is no i-mutation at all, just breaking.
