Note to Mark Eirdr 29II

[All]: Eiríkr died in the city of Paphos (Knýtl: Basta) in Cyprus (10 July 1103), and he was buried there according to Knýtl. See also Saxo (2005, II, 12, 7, 6, pp. 82-3) and Abbot Nikulás’s Leiðarvísir ( I, 20), where Paphos is called ‘Beffa’. In the C12th and C13th, Paphos was an important staging post for pilgrims to the Holy Land. See also Kedar and Westergaard-Nielsen 1978-9, 197-9, 203-4.
