ǪrvOdd Ævdr 61VIII (Ǫrv 131) l. 7

víking — murderer


víkingr (noun m.; °-s, dat. -i; -ar): viking



[7] víking ‘murderer’: The noun víkingr often has pejorative force in post-Viking Age Icelandic texts and may gloss a range of terms from ‘thief, robber’ to ‘murderer’ (cf. ONP: víkingr); the last of these is chosen here to characterise Ǫgmundr.
