HSt Rst 23I l. 7

hilmis — of the ruler

lemma:

hilmir (noun m.): prince, protector

readings:

notes:

[7] seg*ja ... heg*ju hilmis ‘tell ... about the condition of the ruler’: The ms. reads heggju hilmis seggja, which does not make sense and fails to provide an inf. to complete the construction with the auxiliary kann ‘can, know how to’. This edn follows previous eds in emending to hegju ‘life, condition’ or ‘events’ (as in Arn Þorfdr 19/4II) and segja ‘tell’.
