Hróksv Hrkv 6VIII (Hálf 56) l. 6

háleyskan — from Hålogaland


háleyskr (adj.): [from Hålogaland]



[6] háleyskan ‘from Hålogaland’: Some eds (Hálf 1864; Edd. Min.; Hálf 1909; FSGJ) print háleygskan. The adj. háleyskr ‘from Hålogaland’ may be used here as a synonym for ‘Norwegian, from Norway’. Hálfr’s and his champions’ associations with Hålogaland are also referred to in Hálf 8/2, though their precise connection with this part of northern Norway is unclear.
