The st., Anon (MH), is recorded in H, Hr (H-Hr) and Flat (Flat) only, and it must have been part of Mork (Mork), which has a lacuna at this point (the lacuna has been filled in with text from Flat in Mork 1928-32 and Andersson and Gade 2000). The st. is anonymous in all mss. In AM 761 b 4°ˣ (761bˣ) Árni Magnússon (at 247r) tentatively suggested that it could have belonged to Oddr kíkinaskáld’s memorial poem from c. 1047 about Magnús inn góði Óláfsson (Okík Magn), as does Fidjestøl (1982, 133), but that attribution is rejected by Finnur Jónsson (SnE 1848-87, III, 577). See also Introduction, Okík Magn. H is the main ms.
