HSt Rst 30I l. 8

jafn — the same


jafn (adj.; °comp. -ari, superl. -astr): even, just


[8] jafn: so all others, jǫfn Bb(112rb)


[8] jafn ‘the same’:  This m. adj. agrees with goðvefr m. ‘precious cloth’. Konráð Gíslason (1895-7) retains the Bb(112rb) reading jǫfn, suggesting that the scribe had the cloak (skikkja f.) in mind; it could alternatively be n. pl. qualifying goðvefr ok grôn skinn á hônum ‘the precious cloth and the grey fur on it’.
