notes[35] strijd written on the right margin. [36] The scribe of the main text, Ásgeir Jónsson, has written g. Later, another hand has written g on the right margin, close to the end of the line. Someone, probably the same hand has added –eira to Ásgeir’s original g, disregarding the – abbreviation sign. To clarify, the later hand writes geira above the line, between the original g (by then geira) and the added g on the right margin. Ein und sigri gefnom is written further to the right on the margin. [37] rÈñ furgia fall fiorar written on the right margin. [38] fólk meidir written on the right margin. [39] var frágom {ãat} ãar vága written on the right margin. [40] A line separates this stanza and the next one, following immediately. The initial letter of each word in the last line is written above the line; v m s h. vadr hri¨d oc red si¨dan written on the left margin.
