Kálf Kátr 2VII l. 8

óðsemjanda — the composer of poetry

lemma:

óðsemjandi (noun m.): composer of poetry

readings:

[8] * óðsemjanda drápu: í ótemjandi drápu 713, 444ˣ, í ótem[jandi d]rápu 399a‑bˣ, ‘í ótemjandi [...] drápu drápu’ 920ˣ

notes:

[8] óðsemjanda (acc. sg.) ‘the composer of poetry’: So Skj B. Kock (Skald) has jótemjanda ‘tamer of horses’, but his interpretation seems rather farfetched (see NN §§1775, 3382B).
