Note to stanza
2. Ívarr Ingimundarson, Sigurðarbálkr, 13 [Vol. 2, 509-10]
[1-2]: The F and Mork variants can be construed as follows: margir tóku við syni Magnúss ‘many accepted the son of Magnús’ (so F); tóku síðan Sigurð til landa ‘they then elected Sigurðr (to rule) the lands’ (so Mork). The F reading is unmetrical (l. 2, við Magnúss syni, is hypermetrical), and the Mork version seems to have been occasioned by corruption from the prose text (Mork 1928-32, 414): Her vicr hann sva til at þvi sem fyʀ var sagt at þeir toco við S. slembi at konvngi ‘here he [Ívarr] refers to that which was mentioned previously, that they accepted Sigurðr slembir as king’.
