Note to Anon Nkt 38II

[All]: The wording of this st. corresponds closely to the prose of Mork (1928-32, 56): Ætt Haralldz er su so᷎gd ath verid hafe at Haralldr harfagre atti son þann er kalladr var Sigurdr hrise. han var fadir Haldanar fodr Sigurdar syrs fodr Haralldz ‘The genealogy of Haraldr is said to have been such, that Haraldr hárfagri had a son who was called Sigurðr hrísi. He was the father of Hálfdan, the father of Sigurðr sýrr, the father of Haraldr’. Cf. also HN (MHN 109-10): Sigwardus risi (id est gigas), filius Haraldi comati genuit Halfdanum patrem istius Sigwardi ‘Sigurðr risi (that is ‘Giant’), the son of Haraldr ‘the Long-haired’, begot Hálfdan the father of this Sigurðr’.
