Note to stanza
1. 17. Þorvaldr Hjaltason, Lausavísur, 2 [Vol. 1, 273]
 henda ‘catch’: This fits well in context, providing an inf. to follow at, and producing a collocation which is paralleled in hendi hermenn ‘captured warriors’ in Arn Þorfdr 10/7-8II. It is marked as an emendation here since Flat’s reading consists of <h> with a horizontal bar through the ascender, which is the normal abbreviation for hann, followed by <anda>, so ‘hannda’, normalised handa, seems the likeliest expansion, though henda is written in 761bˣ, printed in Skj A and B and preferred in Flat 1860-8, which notes handa as an alternative. Meanwhile, neither henda nor handa provides skothending, so the line may be corrupt.
