sína (m. acc. pl.) ‘his’: (a) The poss. pron. is emended here, as in most eds, from ms. sínu so it agrees with the object of the clause, sveina ‘followers, youths’. (b) Sínu (n. dat. sg.) could alternatively be retained and taken with fólki ‘battle’ (which would then have its alternative sense ‘troop’), but this leaves sveina underspecified. (c) Kock (Skald and NN §3245) reads sýnu, n. dat. sg. of sýnn ‘visible, clear’, which he takes here and elsewhere as an adverbial ‘clearly, certainly’.
