Note to Anon Hsv 28VII

[6]: This l. might have been influenced by Sigrdr 25 (NK, 195): Alt er vant, | ef þú við þegir; | þá þiccir þú með bleyði borinn | eða sǫnno sagðr; | ... Annars dags | láttu hans ǫndo farit | oc launa svá lýðom lygi! ‘Everything is lost if you are silent in response; then you seem to be born a coward or else it is spoken truly; ... on another day let his spirit pass on and thus repay his lies in public’ (Larrington 1996, 170).
