Note to Sigv Austv 12I

[2] allsnúðula ‘very quickly’: The adv. is here construed with ríðum ‘we ride’ in l. 3, an interpretation supported by rôs ‘race, rush’ in l. 7. It can alternatively be connected with líta út ‘look out’ in l. 1, producing simpler word order but less transparent sense (assuming, perhaps, the women are dashing to the window; so E. Noreen 1923, 39 and several other eds).
