. Poetry from the treatises on poetics not published in SkP III

The lists below identify items present in at least one poetic treatise but published in a volume of SkP other than SkP III. These lists are first divided according to the treatise or part of a treatise in which the item is found (e.g. Gylf) and then tagged via the stanza’s siglum to the volume of SkP in which each item can be found together with the rest of the poem or group of stanzas to which it is judged to belong. In cases where an item occurs only in a poetic treatise, and nowhere else, even though it is published in a different volume of SkP and conventionally ascribed to a specific poem, the specific source or sources in which the named item appears is given in round brackets followed by the word ‘only’, e.g. (‘Skm only’). Cases where a citation occurs in more than one poetic or grammatical treatise are also noted (e.g. ‘also in TGT’). ‘*’ indicates more than two citations within a single work, ‘**’ three.
