Bjbp Jóms 20I l. 8

Hjǫrunga — Lia


Hjǫrungar (noun m.): [Lia] < Hjǫrungavágr (noun m.)


[8] Hjǫrunga‑: so RCP, RFJ, 61, 54, ‘hior[…]’ R, ‘hirvnga’ 65ˣ, Hjǫrungar‑ 53, ‘hiorro᷎nga’ Bb


[8] Hjǫrungavági ‘Liavågen’: A small inlet south of Ålesund, Møre og Romsdal. The location of the battle is disputed: see Megaard (1999). Kock (NN §2818) adopts the 61 reading á Hjǫrungavági ‘at Liavågen’ to improve the metre of l. 8, in which resolution of Hjǫrung- is suspended (cf. Note to st. 9/6); but the line remains unmetrical. Further, l. 6 has á ‘at’, so in order to avoid duplication Kock has to emend l. 6 skóðs á to skóða ‘of harms’.
