Note to ÞjóðA Magnfl 12II

[7] skeiðr (f. acc. pl.) ‘warships’: The monosyllabic pl. skeiðr is attested by the metre, as also, e.g., in ÞjóðA Frag 1/3, Arn Magndr 14/1 and Bǫlv Hardr 2/4, while a disyllabic skeiðar or skeiðir is required, and indicated by the mss, in ÞjóðA Har 5/6, Arn Hardr 3/2. That skeið refers to a warship is well evidenced, but it is difficult to specify the type of ship further (Jesch 2001a, 123-4).
