Note to Anon Alpost 7VII

[9, 10] fari ... minni ‘let a memorial toast ... proceed/go forth’: Cf. e.g. Egils saga ch. 44 (ÍF 2, 108) fóru minni mǫrg ok skyldi horn drekka í minni hvert ‘many memorial toasts proceeded and a horn had to be drained at each toast’. Cf. the refrain of Ceciliudiktur 31 (ÍM II, 346): Fari hier med fagnad inni | fru Ceceliu minni ‘With joy let there proceed herein a memorial toast to our Lady Cecilia’; see Introduction.
