Note to Anon Hsv 50VII

[All]: Lat. parallel: (Dist. I, 35) Ne dubita cum magna petas impendere parva: / his etenim rebus coniungit gratia caros ‘Do not hesitate, when you are seeking great things, to spend a little; for in such matters good behaviour requires expenditures’. On the topics of hospitality and generosity in ON-Icel. poetry, cf. for instance Hávm 48, 117 (NK, 24, 35), Hárb 21 (NK, 81).
