context: Sigurðr now approaches Oddr with a second horn full
of ale and recites this stanza.
notes: Sigurðr uses another
standard topos of the mannjafnaðr,
of the form ‘I was at the fight, but you were not there [implication: you were
too cowardly to fight]; instead you were engaged in a demeaning act in pursuit
of creature comforts [implication: you are soft and unmanly]’.
