Styrkárr Oddason (Styrkárr)

11th century; volume 3; ed. R. D. Fulk;

Fragment (Frag) - 1

Nothing is known of Styrkárr, though Faulkes (SnE 1998, I, 200) notes that he could have been the lawspeaker who died in 1181, according to Sturlunga saga (ch. 87; see Stu 1988, I, 114). No other work of his is known to survive.
