— few


3. fár (adj.; °compar. fǽrri/fárri(Mág² 11ˆ), superl. fǽstr): few


[1] fá: fáir 99a, 622, 713, Vb, 41 8°ˣ, 705ˣ, 4892


[1] trúig fá munu hitta föðurætt hans ‘I believe few will encounter his father’s kin’: The conj. needs to be understood at the beginning of the subordinate cl. The statement here is typical skaldic understatement: ‘his father’ is the ineffable God.
