context: See Note [All] to previous stanza.
notes: Heiðrekr replies (Heiðr 1960, 81): ǫr er þat ‘that is the arrow’. It is unfortunate that the solution is not more elaborate, as many of the others are, since that might help in reconstructing the stanza, which cannot be made sense of without emendation. The brevity of the solution might suggest that the stanza was already corrupt or difficult to interpret when it was set into its prose context. — : See Note to Heiðr 55/1.
