Hókr Eirfl 8I l. 3

þjóðir — troops


þjóð (noun f.; °-ar, dat. -/-u; -ir): people



[3] þjóðir glæstu þá skeiðr ‘troops then adorned the ships’: The sense is that the well-equipped warriors lent glory to Óláfr’s fleet. The Fsk variant, skeið (f. acc. sg.) ‘ship’, which is adopted in Skj B, Skald and ÍF 29, focuses the attention on Ormr inn langi and its crew, but it is the minority reading.
