Note to Anon Mgr 51VII

[5] mig ‘me’: The pron. is written above the l. in 713, and Skj B emends to þá ‘then’, with sál mína ‘my soul’ (l. 8) as the only object of leittu ‘lead’ (l. 5). Skald omits the pron. altogether and inserts the excrescent -u- in ítr (i.e. ítur ‘splendid’). The present edn follows Wrightson.
