ǪrvOdd Ævdr 46VIII (Ǫrv 116) l. 2

drengir — fellows


drengr (noun m.; °-s, dat. -; -ir, gen. -ja): man, warrior


[2] drengir: þegnar 471, 173ˣ


[2] hoskir drengir ‘wise fellows’: Oddr presumably refers to himself and his companions. Elsewhere the epithet ho(r)skr ‘wise’ is used ironically (see Ǫrv 79/1, 6) and Note to [All]), though that does not seem to be the case here.
