Aside from Crete and Cyprus (Krít and Kípr l. 1), all islands listed in this stanza are located in Norway. Many of the names occur in Einarr Skúlason’s stanzas which precede Þul Eyja in ms. A, and they are also known from LaufE (the last two stanzas only from the latter source and RE 1665(Ee3); see Introductions to Þul Islands and ESk Lv 8-9, 14-15): Lygra (Lygra ll. 1, 5), Karmøy, Radøy (Kǫrmt, Rǫð l. 2), Varða (l. 4), Giske (Gizki l. 6), Tjøtta (Þjótta l. 7), Tromøy and Kinn (Þruma, Kinn l. 8).
