Steinarr (Steinarr)

11th century; volume 3; ed. Russell Poole;

Poem about a woman (Woman) - 1

Nothing is known about Steinarr (Steinarr) beyond the citation of a half-stanza fragment in Skm (SnE). In SnE mss and A he is referred to as Steinn but that is probably merely through confusion with Hallar-Steinn, some of whose stanzas appear immediately before this helmingr within the same group of citations. Finnur Jónsson (Skj, with a query) refers Steinarr to the eleventh century but there do not seem to be linguistic or other grounds for any certainty on this point.
