Note to Þul Skipa 2III

[4] hélugbarði (m.) ‘rimy-prowed one’: From the adj. hélugr ‘hoary’ and barð n. ‘prow’ (see barðkaldr ‘prow-cold one’ in l. 2 above). As a term for ‘ship’ this heiti occurs only in this þula, but it is the name of a horse ridden by a ghost in a dream stanza (Anon (Nj) 1/2V (Nj 42)). The phrase hélug bǫrð ‘rime-spread prows, frosted prows’ also occurs in Arn Hryn 11/4II and Mark Eirdr 14/4II.
