Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], E. 10. Vers af Fornaldarsagaer: Af Ǫrvar-Oddssaga β 2: AII, 295-6, BII, 315-16, Skald II, 168; Ǫrv 1888, 105, FSGJ 2, 260-1.

Context: This stanza is the second of a roll-call of Hjálmarr’s former drinking mates.

Notes: [All]: As with the names in the previous stanza, those given here include both legendary names and those attested in sagas and other records, in this case including runestones. Igull ‘Hedgehog’ (l. 2) is found as a pers. n. on the Karby stone in Uppland, Sweden (U151), while trandill ‘Ball, Orb, Sphere’ (cf. OE trendell) occurs both as a nickname and pers. n. in Ldn (ÍF 1, 381) and in an inscription at Maeshowe, Orkney (Run Br Barnes20VI). — [7] Gylfi: The version of 471, preferred to the other mss’ Gylfri, which is otherwise unattested. Gylfi is the name of the legendary Swedish king mentioned in the Prologue to SnE and its second section, Gylf (SnE 2005, 6, 7).
