Hharð Lv 2aII l. 2

megna — strengthen

lemma:

megna (verb): strengthen

readings:

notes:

[2] megna ‘strengthen’: For this verb, see LP: megna. The host of farmers from Trøndelag opposed and outnumbered Haraldr and Óláfr at Stiklestad (see also Hharð Lv 1, Hharð Gamv 1, ÞjóðA Sex 1 and Bǫlv Hardr 1/1-4). Earlier eds emend to vegna (m. acc. pl.) ‘slain’ (‘I saw the host of slain farmers’), which is not supported by the ms. witnesses.
