[5, 8] vágr Stafaness ‘the bay of Stavenes’: The p. n. is in the gen. case, though only FskAˣ (with its sister transcripts 52ˣ and 301ˣ) reads ‘-ness’. Stafanes corresponds phonologically to, and is probably to be identified with, Stavenes i Askvoll, a prominent headland north of Fjaler, Sogn og Fjordane, and site of numerous prehistoric burial mounds.
