Note to Sturl Hryn 12II

[7] herboð ‘conscripted army’: So E, 81a, 8, Flat. This reading gives alliteration in three words in the same l. (höfðu : herboð : höldar), but that is not unusual in hrynhent. Konráð Gíslason (1895-7, I, 76) adopted the reading of F, útboð ‘levy’, avoiding the extra alliteration, but the other ms. witnesses show that this is a secondary variant.
