Sigv ErfÓl 10I l. 1

Vítt — Far and wide

lemma:

víðr (adj.): far

readings:

[1] Vítt: ‘vętt’ 73aˣ, víð Tóm

notes:

[1] vítt ‘far and wide’: I.e. the field was crowded with warriors. Finnur Jónsson (Hkr 1893-1901, IV) interprets this as referring to the broad valley of Værdal in which Stiklestad lies, as seen by those coming across the mountains, and makes a link to the prose of ÓHHkr chs 202-3 (ÍF 27, 351-3).
