Note to Bjbp Jóms 9I

[6] Sigurði: Sigurðr Vésetason, Búi’s brother and another Jómsvíkingr. The form Sigurði produces an unmetrical line (Kuhn 1983, 109), since the first two syllables would normally resolve (cf. st. 20/8 and Note). The more archaic form Sigvarði would obviate the difficulty, but the form is retained here since suspended resolutions occur elsewhere in Jóms.
