notes: According to the saga prose (Ǫrv 1888, 106-8), Oddr carried the dead Hjálmarr down to the shore and aboard his ship. Once he reached Sweden, he lifted his dead friend onto his back and carried him, together with his mail-coat and helmet, to the king’s hall in Uppsala (not Sigtuna, as in this stanza). — : Most eds have either cliticised bar ek (so Skj B, Skald and FSGJ) or bracketed mér (so Ǫrv 1888).
