Note to Hharð Lv 10II

[7] í garði Serkja ‘in the stronghold of the Saracens’: Skj B connects this prepositional phrase with the previous cl. (‘when I reddened the blades far from my native land in the stronghold of the Saracens’), which creates a very convoluted w. o. (see NN §847A). For Serkland ‘land of the Saracens’, i.e. North Africa, the Arab sector of Asia Minor, Syria, see Jesch 2001a, 104-7 and Sigfús Blöndal 1978, 60-3. See also Þfisk Lv 3/5-8, Þstf Lv 3/6, ÞjóðA Sex 2 and ÞjóðA Lv 4/5-8.
