[3-4]: These two lines probably refer to the king of the English, named as Játmundr in some mss, who has usurped Skolli’s kingdom and killed his father and many of his kinsmen. The second helmingr then refers to the battle, said to have taken place in the south of the country, in which Oddr’s and Skolli’s men fight against Játmundr, kill him, and gain the kingdom.
