Note to Anon Hsv 12VII

[All]: Lat. parallels: (sent. 26) libros lege ‘read books’; (sent. 38) litteras disce ‘study literature’; (sent. 39) bono benefacito ‘do good to a good man’; (sent. 25) meretricem fuge ‘avoid a prostitute’; (sent 40) tute consule ‘give safe advice’. Two mss have nem ‘learn’ (l. 2) (so Skj B and Skald), and the Lat. parallels have more to do with learning than teaching. The importance of education is also mentioned in Sól 49. Hávm 118/3 parallels the illra kvenna of 1199ˣ (NK, 36).
