This st. (Slembir Lv) is the only poetry attributed to Sigurðr. The metre is a mixture of fornyrðislag (ll. 1-3, 5-6) and tøglag ‘journey metre’ (ll. 4, 7-8; see SnSt Ht 69III, SnE 1999, 29-30) with an intricate pattern of internal rhymes linking the ll. together. The st. is recorded in Mork (Mork), in mss , F, E, J2ˣ and 42ˣ of HsonaHkr and in H, Hr (H-Hr). The prose and poetry of F follow Mork rather than Hkr here, hence F has not been included in the Hkr stemma in the present edn. is the main ms.
