ÞjóðA Sex 8II l. 2

fingnum — captured


finginn (adj./verb p.p.): [captured] < herfinginn (adj./verb p.p.)


[2] ‑fingnum: ‘fengnum’ R, Tˣ, C, ‘‑feinngium’ B


[2] herfingnum ‘war-captured’: The form -fingnum is secured by the rhyme on stinga. It is dat. sg. of p. p. finginn, a variant on fenginn apparently modelled on pret. pl. fingum (later fengum; ANG §504 and Anm. 5; Finnur Jónsson 1901, 98).
