 mansǫng ‘a love-song’: This is an important attestation of the generic term for the kind of love-poetry whose composition and circulation was banned in Iceland according to Grágás (Grg Ib, 184). The term also occurs in Anon Mhkv 20/3III and is one of the important features shared by the two poems (see Introduction). For discussion of the term and genre, see Marold (2007).
