ǫll ... með hringum ‘all ... every one’: Með /at hringum is recorded elsewhere in verse and prose, although not very common. LP: 1. hringr 6 compares með hringum with með bugum ‘with (all its) curves, completely’. The phrase might be compared with Ív Sig 41/4 með stǫfnum ‘from stem to stern’, referring to the clearing of a warship (see also Note to Anon Nkt 28/2), however, and the collocation with allr ‘all’ and the context (Magnús’s capture of Sveinn’s ships at Helgenæs) both here and in Arn Magndr 14/4 would suggest that the sense is of seizing (numerically) all the ships, rather than each ship completely.
