Fyrir útan ǫnd ok líkam verðr antonomasía sem hér:
98. Né dýrs far fleiri
fleinmóða segik óðar
mælum slíkt við sælan
sittu heill konungr deili.
Hér er sæll settr fyrir nafni konungs, ok er svá óeiginlig líkning, en sæla kemr af tilfellum, ok er hér hvárki eiginlig ǫnd né líkam.
Antonomasia occurs extrinsically, as here:
Here "the fortunate one" is used instead of the name of the king. There is therefore an improper comparison, for fortune is not really an atcribute of either spirit or body, since it depends on circumstance.
