Note to stanza

1. 57. Bjarni byskup Kolbeinsson, Jómsvíkingadrápa, 23 [Vol. 1, 979]

[All]: The ms. is badly damaged at the top of the leaf here, so that little of the stanza is legible, but enough is visible to show that ll. 1, 4, 5 and 8 form the third appearance of the stef ‘refrain’, which can be reconstructed from the corresponding lines in sts 15 and 19. For the remaining lines, the diplomatic texts in Jvs 1879 (siglum RCP in Readings) and Skj A (siglum RFJ) are used, though they are not complete and not always in agreement. This stanza is not copied in 65ˣ (see further Introduction).
