Note to Þul Eyja 2III

[5] Sága: As a p. n. known only from HHund I 39/2 (NK 136) á nesi Ságo ‘on the headland of Sága’, which is identified as Sågnes (Saaghonæs, Saghones; cf. S-G II, 93). That is most likely not the name of the island mentioned in the present stanza, however. There are several places in Norway called Saga (e.g. on Fosna in Trondheimsfjorden; see st. 4/3), but none of them is an island.
