eldi (dat. sg.) ‘fire’: Skald adopts the reading of 180b, eldrinn (nom. sg. with def. art) ‘the fire’, but impersonal svífa ‘sweep’ with dat. is an acceptable construction, and cf. st. 18/1, where the scribe of 180b similarly converts impersonal drífa ‘splatter’ with dat. to a personal construction.
