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

Notes: [1]: Sigvaldi is another name with legendary Danish connotations. In Jvs Sigvaldi is the name of one of the most prominent Jómsvíkingar, the son of Jarl Strút-Haraldr, ruler of Sjælland. — [7, 8]: The names Óttarr, Egill and Yngvarr are associated with traditions of the Swedish and Norwegian Yngling dynasty (cf. Þjóð Yt 14I, 15I and 18I), which are also echoed in the Old English poem Beowulf.
