HSt Rst 6I l. 6

of — proceeded

lemma:

4. of (particle): (before verb)

readings:

[6] of: af or of Bb(111vb), ok 61, 53, 54, Bb(22va), 62, om. Flat

notes:

[6] of: Emendation to the expletive particle is necessary here, and is adopted in previous eds. The ms. readings af ‘from’ and ok ‘and’ do not fit the sense and syntax of the helmingr but both could be corruptions of of by scribes more familiar with the later expletive form um. Further, the vowel graph in Bb(111vb) is unclear and could be taken as <o>.
