Gyðja Lv 5VIII (Ǫrv 66) l. 7

Álfi — to Álfr


alfr (noun m.; °; -ar): elf


[7] Álfi máttir: máttir Álfi 344a, Álfi máttuð 343a, 173ˣ, Álfi mátti 471


[7]: The two words in 344a’s reading máttir Álfi have been reversed to provide a metrically regular line though it is málaháttr rather than fornyrðislag; the latter would require further emendation from Álfi ‘to Álfr’ to Álfs ‘of Álfr’.
