context: Oddr drains the two horns offered by Sjólfr and
Sigurðr and they return to their seats. Then he stands up and carries a horn to
each of them, reciting the following two stanzas.
notes: Ms. 343a has been taken here as main ms., because there are grounds for thinking that ll. 1-2 in 7 have been affected by scribal dittography from the following stanza, Ǫrv 41/1-2, and there are also other inferior readings in this ms. Ms. 344a’s text is also inferior to those of 343a and 471.
