Note to Anon Sól 75VII

[6] eymðum ‘miseries, wretchedness’: 43 mss read synðum ‘sins’, but a substantial minority (21) read eymðum, which is the lectio difficilior and improves the alliteration, as this cannot rest on oss alla; the reading is accepted by Skj B, Skald, Björn M. Ólsen, Falk and Fidjestøl and adopted here.
