1. Et digt om Magnus d. gode
Very little is known about Oddr kíkinaskáld (Okík). Skáldatal lists him among the poets of Magnús Óláfsson and Haraldr Sigurðarson (SnE 1848-87, III, 254, 262, 274-5), and he appears to have been in Norway at the time of Magnús’s death (in 1047). The meaning of his nickname is debated (composing about a person with the name or nickname Kíkini or Kikini: so SnE 1848-87, III, 576, Finnur Jónsson 1907, 246; composing about people from a Norw. farmstead Kíkin: so ÍF 28, 63 n. 1). The quantity of the first <i> in the nickname cannot be established.
