Kálf Kátr 28VII l. 5

Porphíríus — Porphyry

lemma:

Porfiríus (noun m.): [Porphyry]

readings:

[5] Porphíríus: so 399a‑bˣ, 920ˣ, ‘forphíríus’ 713

notes:

[5] Porphíríus: This name proved difficult for Icel. scribes. The writer of 713 wrote ‘forphíríus’ both here (where there seems to be no internal rhyme, unless it is between ‘íus’ and ‘ess’) and at 41/1. In the prose sagas, the name is given as ‘Portfirius’ in the ms. used by Unger (AM 233 a fol), but correctly (‘Porphirius’) in Holm2.
