 sjónfagr svipstund eina ‘beautiful ... a single moment’: This, the reading of the ÓT mss, gives good sense and metre. Sjónfagr is lit. ‘appearance-beautiful’. For the use of acc. sg. eina stund ‘in a single moment’ as an adverbial of time, cf. NS §98. The line in Bb(112rb), senn á svipstund einni ‘at once ... in a single moment’, gives good sense and is identical to ÞjóðA Sex 17/3II, but it is less satisfactory since it is not skjálfhent or tvískelft (see Introduction).
