Kúgi ‘Kúgi’: The variant Kúga in R702ˣ could be construed as in apposition to l. 3, but the vocative seems preferable given the 2nd pers. pron. in l. 2. This Kúgi appears to be the only person recorded with this name (Lind 1905-15, 722); although it also appears in Anon KúgdrIII, this probably refers to the same person. It is conceivable that the name arose as a nickname after the fact of his submission to Rǫgnvaldr (cf. the verb kúga ‘intimidate, force into submission’, and the C12th nickname kúgaðr, Lind 1920-1, 224), in which case the st. may not be contemporary with the event.
