Angantýr Lv 9VIII (Heiðr 43) l. 3



2. fullr (adj.; °compar. -ari, superl. -astr): full, complete < fullfeikn (adj.)


[3] fullfeikn: so 2845, fláráð Hb, R715ˣ


[3] fullfeikn ‘destructive’: Mss Hb and R715ˣ read fláráð ‘deceitful, false’, but it is difficult to see why Angantýr should consider Hervǫr so. Fullfeikn also provides a verbal echo with full feiknstafa ‘full of curses’ in Heiðr 29/3. Fláráð is preferred in Heiðr 1873, 221 and Edd. Min., however, while the eds of CPB (CPB I, 167) emend to fáráð and translate ‘foolish’. Skj B and Skald print fullfeikn, as here.
