Enigma er myrkt sen um leynda líking hlutanna sem hér:
117. Fara ek sá
á sat nár á ná.
Þess konar fígúru kǫllum vér gátu, ok er hon jafnan sett í skáldskap.
Aenigma occurs when the sense is rendered obscure by abstruse comparisons between things, as here: [...] We call this type of figure gáta ("riddle") and it is frequently used in poetry.
