Hókr Eirfl 3I l. 7

at — near


3. at (prep.): at, to


[7] at: und Flat, FskAˣ, Holm18, 310, 4‑7


[7] at holmi ‘near the island’: Und holmi, lit. ‘below the island’ (so Flat, FskAˣ, Holm18, 310, 4-7), is also possible, and would imply that the island had steep cliff-sides. For the debate about the possible location of Svǫlðr (and whether it was an island, a river or a bay), see entry for Óláfr Tryggvason in ‘Ruler biographies’ in Introduction to this volume.
