Note to Þjóð Yt 10I

[10] greiði eykja ‘riding gear’: Lit. ‘tack of draught animals’. The J2ˣ reading greiði ‘harnesses’ (cf. New Norw. n. pl. greie ‘gear, tackle’; and cf. Konráð Gíslason 1881, 220) is preferred here as more specialized than gǫrvi ‘equipment’ in . Greiði also finds some support in the F reading gerði. On the various older interpretations of greiði eykja, see Konráð Gíslason (1881, 218-19).
