Note to Anon Sól 28VII

[1, 3] þykkir ‘it seems’: The repetition of þykkir has tempted eds, following Bugge, to emend the first þykkir to dugir ‘it helps, is of advantage’ (so Falk, Björn M. Ólsen, Skj B, Skald, Fidjestøl) but þykkir is found in 166bˣ and 58 other mss; þarftu ‘you need’ in 1441ˣ looks like an intelligent scribal emendation.
