Note to Anon Óldr 27I

[All]: Formal irregularities (hypermetrical l. 1, lack of hending in ll. 2 and 4, three rhyming syllables in l. 5, missing l. 8), coupled with unconventional syntax and kenning construction, indicate this stanza is corrupt, and there is no attempt to edit it in Munch and Unger (1847) or Gullberg (1875). The text presented here is an attempt to interpret the ms. readings with minimal emendation, in accordance with the practice of the present edn, but should be regarded as more than usually provisional.
