Einarr þveræingr Eyjólfsson (Eþver)

11th century; volume 1; ed. Diana Whaley;

Lausavísa (Lv) - 1

Einarr (Eþver) was the son of Eyjólfr Valgerðarson (EValg), and his nickname refers to his home territory of Þverá (Munkaþverá in Eyjafjörður, northern Iceland). He is an adversary of the titular hero in Víga-Glúms saga, and his second lausavísa Eþver Lv 2V (Glúm 11) is associated with a fight against Víga-Glúmr (ÍF 9, 94-5); it is edited in SkP V. Finnur Jónsson (LH I, 519) believed both Einarr’s lausavísur to be genuine, citing the form rinna, which rhymes on linns in Lv 2/2V.
