Note to Ótt Hfl 14I

[2] knǫrru ‘cargo-ships’: On the meaning of knǫrr see Jesch (2001a, 128-32). As Jesch notes, the tradition that Óláfr returned to Norway with two merchant ships is also found in most of the prose sources, Latin as well as vernacular (ibid., 130 n. 15; McDougall and McDougall 1998, 76 n. 122).
