HSt Rst 7I l. 7

áðr — already


áðr (adv.; °//): before



[7] áðr ‘already’: The adv. áðr ‘before’ here, as elsewhere, seems to give pluperfect force to the verb, hence flýði áðr ‘had already fled’. It would give less good sense, though smoother syntax, if taken as qualifying né vildi, hence ‘and had not wished’ (l. 6).
