[5-8]: The stef is recorded in full in 399a-bˣ, though þoldu (l. 6) is replaced by striddu, as in the first instance of the stef in st. 9. 720a VI has only l. 5, Skírir menn hjá skapara várum, written in full, but no indication in the margin that the rest of the refrain has been omitted, probably because the ms. has been severely cut away at this point.
