Eyjar — the Isles [Orkney]


1. ey (noun f.; °-jar, dat. -ju/-; -jar): island



[4] Eyjar ‘the Isles’: That Orkney is meant is suggested by external historical sources (cited by Konráð Gíslason 1895-7), and the reference to Shetland in l. 5; Eyjar also refers to Orkney, e.g., in TorfE Lv 2/3, Anon Óldr 12/2.
