S… ‘S...’

(non-lexical)

[1] S…: ‘[...]’ 399a‑bˣ

notes

[1] S…: Kahle read l. 1 as ‘S...tus hét...’. To Finnur Jónsson (Skj A) ‘lér’ was visible between ‘S...’ and at the end of the l., ‘synda’, and in Skj B he emends the l. to S...tus hiet ... synda, presumably influenced by Kahle’s reading which goes back to a suggestion of Jón Þorkelsson (see Kahle 1898, 113) that the first word was ‘Sixtus’, but, if so, only one st. was devoted to this saint, as Kahle observes.
