 meingarðr: so 61, 54, Bb(94vb), meingarðs Bb(112rb), mengerðr Flat
 meingarðr margra jarða ‘the harmful enclosure of many lands [SEA]’: The context and skaldic convention suggest this interpretation (see Meissner 94 for comparable sea-kennings). Sveinbjörn Egilsson (Fms 12, 55) and Konráð Gíslason (1895-7) took the kenning as a reference to Óláfr as fence or protector against harm (perhaps specifically paganism), but this is unlikely.
