Jómsvíkingar — the Jómsvíkingar


jómsvíkingr (noun m.): [Jómsvíkingar]



[4] Jómsvíkingar ‘the Jómsvíkingar’: This collective name for the warriors based in Jóm or Jómsborg (see Note to st. 6/2) is not found in contemporary poetry, and this led Lauritz Weibull to dispute their existence; see ÍF 26, cxi-cxii for a summary of the debate.
