Note to stanza
1. 37. Sigvatr Þórðarson, 11. Erfidrápa Óláfs helga, 8 [Vol. 1, 674]
 nenna ‘travel’: The pres. tense seems to refer to the Swedes’ ongoing willingness to travel west to Norway, and perhaps to takes sides in Norwegian conflicts. Óláfr’s return to Norway from Russia in 1029 was via Sweden and Snorri (ÍF 27, 348) relates that he came with a troop of 480 men provided by the king of the Swedes. That Óláfr had hoped for more is implied by st. 9/1-4. It is suggested in Hkr 1893-1901, IV (also ÍF 27) that there is a still more specific allusion to Swedish support for the boy king Magnús Óláfsson on his return to Norway c. 1035; this would have obvious implications for the dating of the poem (see Introduction).
