vegskjótum* ‘swift in glory’: B reads ‘vegskiotumz’. Finnur Jónsson (Skj B) emends to vegskjótust, f. nom. sg. of the superlative adj. vegskjótastr. He construes this as qualifying the periphrasis for the Virgin, and glosses rask til at give hæder ‘swift to give honour’. Finnur’s interpretation is accepted without comment by Kock and Black. Sveinbjörn Egilsson (1844) takes B’s ‘vegskiotumz’ as an error for vegskjótum, which he understands as the m. dat. pl. of vegskjótr, qualifying mǫnnum (l. 7). In either case, the first element of the cpd is understood as vegr ‘glory, renown, honour’, Sveinbjörn’s gloss for vegskjótr in LP (1860) being ad gloriam promptus, honoris cupidus ‘ready for glory, desirous of honour’. Sveinbjörn’s interpretation requires least emendation, and Gamli’s use of coinages on this model is confirmed by the similar adjectival form þrifskjótr ‘swift to prosperity’, in a God-kenning in 12/6.
