Note to Bjbp Jóms 21I

[6] Ármóð ‘Ármóðr’: Ármóðr from Ǫnundarfjǫrðr and his son Árni are named among the leaders of the Norwegian army in Jvs 1879, 71. In ÓT, Ármóðr is described as a great champion, though this may derive from the poem (Ólafur Halldórsson 2000, 78), and he is not specifically named as a commander in Eiríkr jarl’s troop. See also st. 29 and Context on Ármóðr and his fate.
