This helmingr (Skáldþ Lv) is transmitted only in the version of SnE preserved in W, where the poet is named as Skáldþórir. The modern designation of lausavísa is retained here, despite possible indications to the contrary (see Note to l. 2). The stanza is also transmitted in mss 2368ˣ(96) and 743ˣ(75v) of the Y version of LaufE, and it was copied from a LaufE ms. in RE 1665(Ff 3). All of these versions ultimately derive from W, and neither LaufE nor RE 1665 has been used in this edition.
